1806 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Gerard Langbaine

Joseph Haslewood, in "Gerard Langbaine" Gentleman's Magazine 76 (January 1806) 38n.



Langbaine far exceeded his contemporaries in tracing "the plagiarisms of the Stage," both by historical and novel research; and his work referring to the origin of each plot, must remain invaluable to the lover of Dramatic History.
