In 1859 we have the following: The Poetical Works of Robert Herrick, containing his Hesperides and Noble Numbers. With a Biographical Memoir by E. Walford, m.a., Late Scholar of Baliol Coll., Oxford. London: Reeves and Turner, 238 Strand. 1859. (post pp. Xi. And and finally in 1869, this Hesperides the Poems and other Remains of Robert Herrick now First Collected. Edited by W. Carew Hazlitt. London: John Russell Smith, Soho Square, 1869. (2 vols., cr. Vol. I. Pp. Xxx. And 1 - 255 Vol. II., pp. 256 526: copies also on large paper). Mr. Hazlitt disavows responsibility for the text, which is virtually that of Pickering's of 1846 but in the Biographical Notice he has intercalated some additions and corrections within brackets, and in Appendices added Poems from mss., etc. Of these and the different editions enumerated more will be found in the memorial-introduction (ii.

For all these Eight editions the admirer of Herrick is grateful. N one is without its own merits. Therefore none ought to be undervalued.

Product Description

In the mid-seventeenth century, the poets associated with the court of Charles I of England, known as the Cavaliers, were strongly influenced by the classicism of Ben Jonson. Their verse, often concerned with the vagaries of love, is characteristically charming, witty, graceful, and elegant. This volume contains a rich sampling of more than 120 works by four Cavalier poets: Robert Herrick, Thomas Carew, Sir John Suckling, and Richard Lovelace.
Included are such well-known gems as Herrick's "To the Virgins to Make Much of Time," ("Gather ye rosebuds while ye may"), Carew's "A Cruel Mistress," Suckling's "Why so pale and wan, fond lover?" and many more. Gathered in this inexpensive volume, this garland of memorable verse will delight any student of English literature or lover of fine poetry.
