1798 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Andrew Greenfield

Alexander Campbell, in Introduction to the History of Poetry in Scotland (1798) 316.



In 1790, another posthumous volume of poetry made its appearance, which was printed at Edinburgh, with the following title, "Poems, by the late Revd. ANDREW GREENFIELD, M.A. Rector of Moira, in Ireland," 8vo. I have hardly dipped into this volume; of consequence can say nothing of its contents. Mr. Greenfield, I am told, was a brother of Mr. Professor Greenfield, of the university of Edinburgh.
