1800 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

John Weever

Samuel Egerton Brydges, in Theatrum Poetarum Anglicanorum (1800) 227.



JOHN WEEVER, like Achelly, has his bare name only recorded by Phillips, among the poets of Queen Elizabeth's reign. His book of Epigrams in 1599, (12mo.) has been already mentioned, and an Epigram addressed to R. Allot, and C. Middleton, has been transcribed. But his works have escaped the industry of Tanner.
