Since the subject of Elizabeth I has come up again, I want to ask a
question.  I recently read some of her poetry.  While it didn't change
my life, it wasn't bad.  I'm curious to read her other writings.  Does
anyone know of an in-print, or e-text edition of her extant poems,
letters, and other texts?  An old spelling edition is preferred, a
critical edition is my second choice, but I'll take anything.

While I'm at it, does anyone know of an English translation of Dante's
La Vita Nuova available on-line?  I can find it in Italian, and have
checked all the usual Dante sites.  Please only respond if you really
know.  Thanks.

Hopefully,
Mike Jensen

Was it small pox Elizabeth had? I was taught that those pox were not
small but great and that she inherited them from dad. The strange
headdresses she favored, we were told, covered the baldness that
resulted form those same pox. Was I misled?

Cheers,
