1847 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Robert Aylett

Edward Farr, in Select Poetry, chiefly sacred, of the Reign of King James the First (1847) xxv.



In 1622 Dr. Robert Aylett published a volume entitled, "Peace, with her Fowre Gardens; viz. Five Moral Meditations of Concord, Chastitie, Constant Courtesie, Gravitie. Also Thrift's Equipage; and Susanna, or the Arrangement of the two Unjust Elders." in 1623 he published "Joseph, or Pharoah's favourite," and posterior to the reign of King James, "Divine Speculations in Metrical Numbers," and "A Wife, not made but bespoken by Dicus, the Batchelor, and made up for him by his fellow-shepheard, Tityrus: in four Pastorall Eclogues." The latter poem, however strange the title may appear, is nevertheless of a religious nature.
