Maybe also Castiglione's Courtier, which has a group of noble guys and
gals chattering in a courtly setting, and would be widely available in
English translation at the time?

One possibility: David Honneyman, *Shakespeare's Sonnets and the Court
of Navarre* (Devon: Merlin, 1996).  I suggest this only on the basis of
its MLA index entry.  I have not read the book yet-in fact, I have not
been able to locate the book yet. (If anyone on the list has read it,
I'd appreciate comments either on- or off-list!)

Your idea sounds very promising.  Good luck!
