ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

George Taylor

(1790 ca.-1821 fl.)


George Taylor "of the Bank of England" published eighteen Spenserian sonnets in his Mental Claims of the Sexes (1821). Since his poems are dated from London he is not likely to be the George Taylor (1772-1851), th acquaintance of Robert Southey who wrote on poetry and economics for the Quarterly Review, and who in 1832 was secretary to the Commission of Inquiry into the Poor Laws.
