Apostol Alexandru Alexandru từ Llanfaethlu, Isle of Anglesey, Vương Quốc Anh
Sidney wrote two versions of this book. The first draft is good, short, and fun. The revised version doubles the size at least, but I'd recommend it. The prose is beautiful, the interpolated stories reinvent the themes, and the moral questions are more complex. And of course, everything written after this book was influenced by it (from King Lear to Stoppard's Arcadia).
