1766 ca. ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Edward Fairfax

Samuel Pegge, 1766 ca; in Anonymiana, or Ten Centuries of Observations on various Authors and Subjects (1809) 161.



CENTURY IV. LXII.

In the Fourth Edition of Fairfax's Tasso, 1749, 8vo, the editor has altered some of the stanzas: he pretends to have done it "with caution"; but it was very imprudent, since we know not now what is Fairfax's, and what his.
