1830 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. John Dyer

George Barrell Cheever, in Studies in Poetry ... A copious Collection of Elegant Extracts (1830) 118.



Dyer published Grongar Hill in his twenty-seventh year, and afterwards made the tour of Italy and composed a poem on the ruins of Rome. On his return to England he married, retired into the country, and became a clergyman of the Established church. Grongar Hill is a very beautiful descriptive and moral poem; elegant and easy in its style and versification.
