ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Arthur Parsey

(1791-1857)


Information seems to be lacking on Arthur Parsey, whose single volume of poems was coldly received; presumably the other titles are by the same writer. References to Cambridgeshire in his poems suggest that at one time he must have resided there.
