1860 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Robert Baron

Thomas Corser, in Collectanea Anglo-Poetica 1 (1860) 187.



Baron speaks of this work [Cyprian Academy] as "the first mayden fruits of his muse;" and as it was published when he was only seventeen, this may be considered as some apology for its imperfections.
