1641 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Francis Quarles

Martin Parker, in Poets Blind Mans Bough (1641); British Bibliographer 2 (1812) 433.



And that sweet seraph of our nation, Quarles,
(In spight of each planatick cur that snarles)
Subscribes to his celestiall harmony,
While angels chant his dulcid melodie.
