Monstrous Adversary
Liverpool University Press

This chapter describes Anne's sudden and unexpected death on 5 June 1588, at Greenwich, in her thirty–second year. Word of Anne's death and Burghley's grief spread to the Continent. More than 40 memorial poems composed by admirers of Countess Anne survive among Burghley's papers, one from the pen of Wilfred Samonde, ‘written upon the death of the right honourable Lady Anne Countess of Oxford’. Much of the poem is conventional, but a notable sentiment, startling in a memorial poem, is the characterization of Anne as ‘Another Grissel for her patience’.

Keywords:   Anne, death, memorial poems, Wilfred Samonde
