The first book to examine Queen Elizabeth I as a “learned prince,” Learned Queen reveals a rather startling phenomenon: Elizabeth’s educated status was crucial to England’s burgeoning role as an international power. Examining Elizabeth’s own demonstrations of erudition alongside literary works of such political luminaries as Sir Philip Sidney and Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex, this book reveals how poetry, foreign relations, and intellectual culture are far more integrated than we have hitherto imagined. From these connections emerges a methodology that places Elizabethan political culture and poetry fully on the transnational stage.
