1806 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Thomas Randolph

Peter L. Courtier, in Lyre of Love (1806) 1:79.



Randolph was born in Northamptonshire, about the year 1607, educated on the foundation of Westminster, and afterwards sent to Trinity College, Cambridge. A strong propensity to youthful pleasures, too freely indulged, brought him prematurely to the grave, when he had scarcely attained the twenty-seventh year of his age.
