1656 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Philip Massinger

Anonymous, in "On the Time-Poets" in Choyce Drollery (1656) 5.



Ingenious Shakespeare, Massinger that knowes
The strength of Plot to write in verse and prose:
Whose easie Pegassus will amble ore
Some threescore miles of Fancy in an houre.
