Abstract :
Draws a comparison between the description of the landscape as an alien, insecure place in the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili and the similar presentation of the landscape in an entertainment devised for Queen Elizabeth I at Cowdray, in 1591. Hosted by Lord Montague, this entertainment led the Queen throughout the grounds - cultivated and wild - of Montague's estate in Sussex, where she encountered various monuments and figures imbued with allegorical and symbolic references to loyalty, religion and freedom. Concludes that in both the Colonna text, in its English translation of 1592, and the entertainment, 'the landscape alienation acts as a metaphor or focus for other kinds of anxieties that are to do with local tensions, the arts of judgement, and the requirement to interpret, bound up with a sense of the instability of the self'. ;
