1814 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

William Vallans

Henry Francis Cary to Thomas Price, 24 April 1814; Memoir of the Rev. Henry Francis Cary (1847) 1:315-16.



Have you ever seen Vallans's Tale of the Two Swannes, in which he describes in verse one of the English counties, I forget which? Tom Warton quotes some very pretty lines from it in his History of English Poetry. I believe it is very scarce.
