1809 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Samuel Daniel

Charles Lamb to Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 7 June 1809; in Thomas Noon Talfourd, Literary Sketches and Letters ... of Charles Lamb (1849) 104-05.



While I think on it, Coleridge, I fetch'd away my books which you had at the Courier Office, and found all but a third volume of old plays.... I found two other volumes (you had three), the Arcadia, and Daniel, enriched with manuscript notes. I wish every book I have were so noted. They have thoroughly converted me to relish Daniel, or to say I relish him, for, after all, I believe I did relish him. You well call him sober-minded. Your notes are excellent.
