1712 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Andrew Marvell

Thomas Newcomb, in Bibliotheca, 1712; Nichols, Select Collection of Poems (1780-82) 3:50.



Nay, to augment my last despair,
Place Ayloffe's self and Marvell there
(A fam'd dull pair, that purely wrote
To raise our spleen, and die forgot).
