1861 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Thomas Beedome

Thomas Corser, in Collectanea Anglo-Poetica II (1861) 247.



The author of these poems died when very young, and the volume here published [Poems] was a posthumous one. And if we may judge from the numerous complimentary verses prefixed to the work, according to the fashion of those times, it would appear that Beedome was held in much esteem and regard by his many friends and contemporaries.
