1598 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Gabriel Harvey

Francis Meres, in Palladis Tamia (1598) fol. 286.



As Achilles tortured the deade bodie of Hector, and as Antonius, and his wife Fulvia tormented the livelesse corps of Cicero: so Gabriell Harvey hath shewed the same inhumanitie to Greene that lies full low in his grave.

As Eupolis of Athens used great libertie in taxing the vices of men: so dooth Thomas Nash, witnesse the broode of the Harveys.
