1687 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

George Peele

William Winstanley, Lives of the Most Famous English Poets (1687) 97.



George Peel, a somewhat antiquated English Bard of Queen Elizabeth's date, some remnants of whose pretty pastoral Poetry we have extant in a Collection, entituled, England's Helicon. He also contributed to the Stage three Plays, Edward the first, a History; Alphonsus, Emperour of Germany, a Tragedy; and David and Bathsabe a Tragi-Comedy; which no doubt in the time he wrote passed with good applause.
