Natur und höfische Ordnung in Sir Philip Sidneys "Old Arcadia"
[Nature and Courtly Order in Sir Philip Sidney’s Old Arcadia]
Aims and Scope
In Old Arcadia, Philip Sidney suggests a courtly order in which nature functions as a force of authority in matters of politics, the law, and morality. This study describes the various concepts of nature he invokes, and investigates their coexistence and conflict with the authority of God and the dominion of fortuna.
