ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Thomas Enort Smith

(1780 ca.-1848 fl.)


Thomas Enort Smith was educated at Eltham School (1795) and contributed dozens of sonnets to the periodicals over a considerable period of time. He appears to be the same writer as the poet who signed himself, ca. 1800, "T. Enort Smith, Little St. Thomas Apostles," and "Thomas Enort Smith, Hammersmith" in the European Magazine, and "Enort Smith, Bermondsly" in the Monthly Magazine in 1818. Smith published a sonnet in Chambers's Edinburgh Journal as late as 1848.
