About this ebook

Among the unpublished papers of Thomas and Joseph Warton at Winchester College, the most interesting and important item is undoubtedly a continuation of Thomas Warton's History of English Poetry. This continuation briefly completes the analysis of Elizabethan satire and discusses the Elizabethan sonnet. The discussion offers material of interest particularly for the bibliographer and the literary historian. The bibliographer, for example, will be intrigued by a statement of Thomas Warton that he had examined a copy of the Sonnets published in 1599—a decade before the accepted date of the first edition. The literary historian will be interested in unpublished information concerning the university career of Samuel Daniel and in the theory that Shakespeare's sonnets should be interpreted as if addressed by a woman to her lover.
