1802 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

John Bodenham

Joseph Ritson, Bibliographia Poetica (1802) 134.



JOHN BODENHAM is thought to be the author of two sonnets, the one "To the universitie of Oxenford;" the other "To the universitie of Cambridge," before his Belvedere, or the garden of the muses: printed by F. K. for Hugh Astley, 1600. 12mo. From a sonnet by A. B. prefixed to Englands Helicon, 1600, it appears that Bodenham was the compiler of that miscellany.
