1800 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Henry Boyd

Nathan Drake, in Literary Hours (1800) 2:202.



Of the Italian poets we possess also some good translations; the Ariosto of Hoole I think much superior to his Tasso, and the Inferno of that wonderful genius Dante, is well laid open to the curiosity of the public by Mr. Boyd.
