1873 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Angell Daye

Thomas Corser, in Collectanea Anglo-Poetica 5 (1873) 123.



We fear that this article on Day's Pastoral has been unwittingly extended to too great a length, but we must plead in excuse, not only the intrinsic merit and interest of the work, and as adding another name to the long catalogue of poetical writers of the Elizabethan period, but also the extreme rarity of the volume, the present being the only copy known to exist, and the circumstance of its not having been previously described by any bibliographer.
