Comment: Re: SHK 10.1312 Re: Elizabeth I
A related question: have there been any attempts to equate Elizabeth
with the fair youth of the sonnets? I'm thinking of the invocations to
breed as a veiled discourse concerning the succession issue. I'm
working on a paper on the political implications of the sonnet cycle
genre, so immediate bibliographical references would be most welcome.
