1700 ca. ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Dr. William Coward

William King, 1700 ca.; Remains of the late learned and Ingenious William King (1732) 50.



It would be of great Use and Honour to our Country, to translate some of our English Poets into Latin, to show Foreigners, that do not understand our Language, what the Spirit of our Poets is. Absalom and Achitophel as a Specimen, and Cowley's Davidei, besides many others; and, I think, one of Cowards.
