She reviews it here:. It exists in only two manuscript copies, an incomplete Huntingdon MS and a Penshurst version on which the performance was based.
The social historical background was included and some of the videos were done on location, which all added interest. Great course. Much different to the kind of course I usually do. Fantastic history of the Sidney Family and beautiful Penshurst Place. The content was just right. The length of the course was just right. As I said Literature is not usually my thing but the history side of it is.
And of course about the place of women in literature. Thank you for the high quality of your courses. Even though I have taught sonnet form and other literature of the period to A level students I still found this course stretching and enlightening.
I gained a lot from the linking of the political and religious history of the era and the special practice and experience of the female writers of the family. I know the gardens at Penshurst very well as gardens but they will have many extra dimensions to them when they are open again and I am able to visit next year! Category: FutureLearn LocalGeneral.

And yet my true love crossed, Neglected for base gain, and all worth lost For riches? If you will but stoutly tell your mother You hate him, and will match with any other, She cannot, nor will go about to cross Your liking, so to bring your endless loss. Wish not such ill which all we suffer must, But take some hope, the Gods are not unjust. My mind doth give me yet you shall be blessed, And seldom do I fail; then quiet rest. Rest quiet?
O heavens! Why, to what end Speak you thus idly? Did I my blessings trust  In your kind breasts, you fatal sisters? Now By your decree to be bestowed? And bow To base unworthy riches? I can not, nor I will not. Ay me, and bear this ill lot? No; I will grieve in spite of grief, and mourn To make those mad who now to Love in penshurst turn.
Review: love’s victory, penshurst place
My dear Musella, what is it doth grieve Your heart thus much? Tell me, and still believe  While you complain, I must tormented be; Your sighs, and tears alas do bleed in me. I must be married; would my days were spent.
To Rustic. My mother so commands,  Who I must yield to, being in her hands. But will you marry? Or show love to me, Or her obey, and make me wretched be.
Alas Philisses, will you this doubt make? I would my life to pleasure you forsake. Grieve not my dearest, I speak but for love;  Then let not love your trouble so far move. You weep not, that it wounds not hapless me, Nor sigh, but in me all those sorrows be: You never cry, but groans most truly show From deepest of my heart I feel your woe.
Yet let your love in me still steady rest,  And in that I sufficiently am blessed.

But must you marry? I hear, and see my end. O Love unjust, Ungrateful, and forgetful of the good From us received, by whom thy fame hath stood,  Thy honour been maintained, thy name adored Which by all others with disgrace was stored. Is this the great reward we must receive For all my service? Will you thus deceive Our hopes, and joys?
That will I ask, and yours requite with mine, For mine can not be, if not ed to thine. Go with me to the temple, and there we Will bind our lives, or else our lives make free.
To die for you, a new life I should gain, But to die with thee were eternal pain. So you will promise me that you will live I willingly will go, and my life give. You may be happy. Happy without thee? Without thee no life can be, nor least joy, Nor thought but how a sad end to enjoy. But promise me yourself you will not harm As you love me. Simeana, she shall go, and so may tell The good or heavy chance that us befell. But what will you two do?

Right level for me as studied with ou fir a long time.
