1725 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Dr. George Sewell

Thomas Cooke, in Battle of the Poets (1725) 18.



The next in Verse had labour'd long in vain,
Till he succeeded in the Tragic Strain;
Till from the Grave he rescued Raleigh's Name,
And nobly built his own on Raleigh's Fame.
