1882 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Edward Thurlow

Epes Sargent, in Harper's Cyclopaedia of British and American Poetry (1882) 359.



This nobleman (1781-1829) is sometimes confounded with Lord Thurlow, the celebrated Lord High Chancellor of England; but he was quite a different person. His poems were ridiculed by Moore and Byron, but, with many faults, show some rare beauties. His Select Poems was published in 1821.
