6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Anne L. Prescott on June 20, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is hard to imagine a more poignant publication than this fine edition of a sister, Mary Sidney, Countess of Pembroke, who finished a translation of the Psalter, begun by her brother, dead in 1586 fighting to help the Dutch stay free. Her poetry is often as powerful as that of more famous poets, not least George Herbert, and it is wonderful to have her and her brother's translations in an edition most of us can afford. The editors are meticulous scholars, well-known in the academic world, and we all owe them--and the Sidneys--applause and gratitude.

A new edition of a masterpiece of late-Renaissance poetizing. Sir Phillip and his sister Mary put the biblical Psalms into wonderful English poetry, showing a depth of biblical insight as well as a mastery of the English language. The editorial apparatus in this edition is very helpful and well done--not only the Introduction but Note on the Text, Explanatory Notes, and Emendations. I actually like this edition better than the JCA Rathmell edition (1963); I find it more useful. It's also very attractive typographically.

These are the psalms, not so much translated as interpreted. They are stunningly beautiful. Just read one or two an you will want this book!
