1606 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Christopher Marlowe

Anonymous, in Second Part of Returne from Pernassus (1606) sig. B2v.



Marlow was happy in his buskine muse,
Alas unhappy in his life and end,
Pitty it is, that wit so ill should dwell
Wit lent from heaven, but vices sent from hell.
