1801 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Thomas Park

Robert Anderson to Thomas Percy, 9 May 1801; Nichols, Illustrations of the Literary History of the XVIII Century (1817-58) 7:95.



Mr. Park is an amiable, ingenious, and accomplished man, of, I believe, a very moderate fortune. He is author of Sonnets and other Poems, 12mo. 1798, and is the best informed in our old poetical literature and biography of any person I have the honour to correspond with in England. He assists Ellis in his Specimens, Way's Fabliaux, and the Romances.
