Robert Devereux ( The Cavaliero)
Robert Devereux The Earl of Essex. Brother of Peneleope Rich (1565-1601) He is the second suitor of Willobie His Avisa (The Cavaliero).The poem correctly describes him as being a military man. The poem describes him as having a wannie face and shaggy locks.The poem also insinuates that this man is the brother of Avisa. The poem suggests that this suitor is only recently known to Avisa but we must remember the poem is written in Ironia this implies the opposite and indicates that this suitor is very well known to Avisa.
