1675 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Edward Fairfax

Edward Phillips, in Theatrum Poetarum (1675) 2:34.



Edmund Fairfax, one of the most Judicious, Elegant and haply in his time, most approved of English Translatours, both for his choice of so worthily Extoll'd a Heroic Poet as Torquato Tasso; as for the exactness of his Version, in which he is judg'd by some to have approved himself no less a Poet than in what he hath written of his own Genius.
