1807 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Samuel Croxall

Robert Southey, in Specimens of the Later English Poets (1807) 2:157.



Croxall's first publication excites much attention; it was a profane Poem, founded upon the Song of Solomon, under the title of the Fair Circassian. He is now known only by his edition of Aesop's Fables, which keeps it ground as a school book.
