The Poems of Sir Walter Ralegh: A Historical Edition By Walter Ralegh; Michael Rudick Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, PS PRIMARY SOURCE A primary source is a work that is being studied, or that provides first-hand or direct evidence on a topic.

    A true ‘Renaissance man’, Walter Ralegh was a poet, explorer and soldier as well as being a favourite of Elizabeth of his literary work is lost, but about thirty short poems and various prose works survive, including The History of the World () and a cycle of poems to ‘Cynthia’ that were addressed to Elizabeth I.

Ralegh’s calm testimony and solemn dignity made him into a martyr, the last of the glorious Elizabethans, and guaranteed his lasting popularity.
