n. CliAT, ROS, AND TATLOft, riirNTi:RI4, 



TsE present edition of thta wcork has been delayed by 
the atitbor*-3 absence abroad for Home years, and hy other 
causes which need not be detailed here. It has aovr been 
carefoUy revised, and enriched with much new matter. 
Indeed, nothing ia bo striking a3 the alterationa which this 
interraL has necessitated — the ravages which death has 
made in the ranks of oar great poets since the last edition 
was issued. Southey, Wordsworth, Moore, Wilson, Mont- 
gomery, Elliott, Joanna BaiUie, Caroline Bowles Sonthcy, 
«nd Rogers, have since then disappeared from the scene. 
In Rogers, was snapped the link which bonnd living authors 
to a long-past period. He tells ns himseK that he coizld 
remember seeing one of the beads of the rebels of 1745 
still remfuning on Temple Bar. He had seen Garrick act ; 
he was cotemporaiy with Johnson and Boswell, Gibbon, 
Cowper, Horace Walpole, Howard the philanthropist ; and 
saw General Oglethorpe, the founder of Georgia, who 
uid he had shot snipes in Conduit Street He had 
associated with Mrs, Piozzi ; heard Sir Joshua Reynolds

The aubject of tlie present 7ork is reiy extensive, and 
it waa soon foond neceaaaiy to leave out the Dramatic 
Poeta for separate treatment To them may pebbly be 
added Bucb otber of oor eminent poets aa could not be 
included in tbe present work. It will be recollected that 
it is professedly on the Hotaes and Haunts of the Poeta, 
and is not strictly biographicaL For this reason there are 
some poeta of considerable eminence, who will find com- 
paratively small mention ; and others none, not becanse 
they are not entitled to much notice, bat because there 
is little or Dothing of deep interest or novelty connected 
with their homes and abodes. 

8ince the publtcation of the former edition of this 
work, many freah. incidents in the lives of the poets in- 
cluded in it have taken place, and a considerable number 
of those then living ore now deceased. In order to notice 
accurately these changes, the whole work has been care- 
fully revised.

There is much that we naturally are aniioua to know oonneet«d 
with the final bte and bmJly of Spender. How hlfi childron actuaJly 
«3capod 7 What became of them, and their claim on the property ? 
When the property of Kilcolman was lost to the poet^s descendants 1 
Of all this nelt to nothing ia known. The hterati of that age do 
not seem to have given themselTea any trouble to preserve the &cts 
of the history of their illufltrioua cotemporaries. Shakspeare and 
Speoser were left to the cold keeping of careless tradition. The 
particulara, beyond what we have a&eady given, are very few. 

Spenaer*a widow returned to Ireland, and there brought up her 
children. Of theee Sylvanus, as eldest son, inherited Bennie and 
Kilcoluian. It appears that he found aome difficulty with hia 
mother, Spenaer's widow, who married again, to a Roger Seckeratone, 
and was ooKged to petition the Lord Chancellor of Ireland, to obtain 
from hia mother and her new husband documente belonging to hia 
estate, which they withheld. He married, ae already stated, Ellen 
N^le, of Monanimy, south of Kilcolman, of a Catholic family^ a 
circuEoatance which had a great effect on the fortunes of their 
descendanl^, as connecting them with the unsuccessful party in the 
troubles of Ireland. His eldest son died without issue, and his 
second son, William^ succeeded to Kilootman. The property of 
William, being seized on by tbe Commonwealth pSTty, was ordered 
to be restored to him by Cromwell, but ia supposed to have only 
1-een regained at the Restoration. He had three other grants of land 
in the counties of Galway and Roscommon ; in the latter, tbe estate 
of Ballinasloe. At the Revolution be joined King William, nho for 
bin serrioea gmnled him the estate of his couein Hugoline, of 
Ketinie. Tlds Hugoline was the son of Porcgrioe, the poet's youngest 
ion, who had Rennie made over to him by his eldest brother, 
Sylvanus. Hugoline took part with his Catholic relatives, and 
aiding with King James at the Revolution, was outlawed, and hia 

Sroperty at Rennie made over to his cousin William, Thus the 
E^ccndanta of Sylvanus, or the eldest son of the poet, became the 
oqIv known posterity of tbe poet. The deecendants of William, 
iiA therefore of Sylvsnus Spenser, the elder male line, pos^^OF^fied 
Rennie till 1734, soon after i^bich this tine became extinct. There 
sre atiU in Ireland persons claiming to be descendants, by the 
mother's side, from Spenser ; and the Ttavera, of Clifton, near Cork, 
aie lineal descendants of Spenser's sister Samh and John Travers, th 
friend of the poet's, who accompanied him to Ireland, and had the 
townlands of Ardenbone and Knocknocaplo given to him bjy Spenser 
as his sister's marriage dowry. The descendants of tbis sister 
Dumber amongst many distinguished families of Ireland, those of the 
Earis of Cork and Orrery, Eirl Shannon, Lord Doneraile, Earl of 
Clanwilliam, etc. 

The fame of Spenser is not quite rooted out of the minds of the 
noij^Uniriiig peaaiuitij. I inquired of an old man and his familj,

kng after he had mounted into an actor himjwlf within the theatre, 
the nuDS of Shakspeare^s boya. That he bocame " an actor at oDe of 
the playhouaefl, and did act exceedind^ well^" Aubrey tella ua. He 
ia supposed to have acted Old Knoweil io Ben Jonaon's " Every Uan 
m hie Humour ;" and Oldya telb oe that a relative of ShakBpeare, 
then in advanced age, but who in his youth bad boen in the habit of 
Tisiting London for the porpoae of seeing him act in some of his 
ownpliiya, told Mr, Jooea of Tarbeck, that ^ he had a faint recollection 
of havinff once seen him act a part in one of his own oomediea, 
Khereiii, being to peraoBsate adecrepit old mao, be wore along beard, 
and appear^ ho weak and drooping, and unable to walkj that he watt 
fon»d to be supported, and carried by another peraon to a table, At 
which he waa aeated amongat eoma company who were eating, and 
one of them aang a aong " This is supposed to have been in the 
cbancter of Adajo^ in ^Ax you like it;" and henoe it hae been 
inferred, in connexion with his acting the Qhost in Hamlet, and Old 
Knowell, that he took chiefly old or elderly choracters- 

Every glimpae of this extraordinary man, who> however much he 
mi^t have heen acknowledged and eetimated in his own day, 
certainly lived long before his time, is deeply interesting. That he 
waa estimated highly we know from Jonaon himaelf : — 

*< Si*«t iw*D or Afon, wbiL ■ flghl It mn 
Xa Aflfl ihee In our witeri jd tppflftT. 
And nuke thoK fl^Jiti upfln tbx banhi of ThunH 
TbHt » did take filiiB ud onr JftmcA." 

When the two monarcke under whom Shakspeare lived admired 
and patronized him* we may be sure that Shakspeare^s great merits 
were perceivedt aud that vividly, though the age had not that 
intellectiial eipaoHion which could enable It to rise above its 
prejudices againat a player, and comprehend that Shakapeare's 
divnaa were not merely the most wonderful dramas, but the moat 
wgndtrfol eipoeitiona of human life and nature that had ever 
ippeared' Feoiile were too busy enjoying the splendid scenes 
pTCsented to them by this great geniiis^ to note down for the 
gratification of posterity the daily aoinga, coonexioDS, and where- 
aboute of the man with whom they were so familiar. He grew rich, 
however, by their Hocking to his theatre, and disappeared from 
amongst them. 

In thie theatre of Blackfriars he rose to great popularity both as 
u actor and dramatic author, and became a proprietor. It wss 
nndcr the management of Richard Burbage, who waa also a share- 
ht^der in the Globe Theatre at Bankside, To the theatre at 
BgdaE^ude, Shakspearc also transferred himself, and there he became, 
in 1603, the lessee. There he seems to have continued about ten 
ytATv, or tiU 1613 ; having, however, so early as 1597, purchased one 
(tf the best bousea in hia native town of Stratford, repaired and 
improved it, and that so much, that he named it New Place. To 
Uiia, as hia proper home, he yearly retired when the theatrical 
Kaaon doaeo ; and having made a comfortable fortune, when the 
theatre wafl burnt down in 1613 retired from public life altogether.

Theao vere the acanea where Shakspeare acted, fbrwTddi he mote 
hia dmnaa, and where, like a careful aud thriving nian u he vaa, 
ho made a fortune before bo waa fortv, calculated to bo equal to 
IfiOOL a-jear at present. He had a brother, also, on the ati^ at the 
ame time with himeelf, who died in 1607, and waa buried in St. 
Savionr'a Chnrch, South wark, where his name is entered in the pariah 
raster as '^ Edmund Shakapeare, a placer." 

The place where he was accustomed particularly to reaoit for 
Mdal recreation was the Mermaid TavBTn, Fndaj-streeti Cheapside, 
Ilia waa the wita^ house for a long period. There a club for bfamd^ 
ctfriU waa eetablishod by Sir Walter Weigh, and here came, in their 
A^reral days and times, Spenser, Shakspearej Philip Sidney, Jodbod, 
Beuimont and Fletcher, Maasingorj Manowe, Selden, Cotton, Carew, 
Uutiu, Doime, Wottoii, and aU the brave spirits of those ages. 
Here Jonaon and Shakapeare used to shine out by the brilliancy of 
thdr powers, and in their " witnximbats,*' in which Fuller deacnbea 
Jonsou aa a Spanish great galUcm, and Shakspeare aa the EnalUh ma/t' 
^par. **Uaster Jonson, tike the former, was built Irt ni^her in 
kaniing ; aolid, but alow in bia performances. 8hakGj>eare, with the 
^ttlw)' man-of-war, lesser in bulk but lighter in sailing, could turn 
witti all tides, tack about, and take advantage of all winds, by the 
qtdcfcnna of his wit and hie jnventioa*^ Enough has been said of 
vns <«1ebTated club by a variety of writers. There can be no doubt 
that there wit and merriment abounded to that degree, that, ae 
Beamnont has said in his epietie to Jonson, one of their meetings 
WI0 epongh to make up for all the stupidity of the city for three 
days paat, and supply it for long to come ; to make the worst com- 
puioos right witty, and " downright fools more wise." There is aa 
nttU doubt, however, that with Jouson in the chair, drinking ,would 
be as pre-eminent as the wit. The verses which be had inscribed 
over tzie door of the Apollo room, at the Devil Tavern, another of 
th«ir TGBorta, are, spite of all vindications bj ingenious pens, too 
icidicatjve of that.

thent tomoko their way in the world, should be left so to m^^ thoiF 
wmy. The lUktion would then have discharged its parental datiea 
towwdfl ihero, and they could expect no more. *!niey ihoold be 
educated to expect no more, and uiore ahould not be extended to 
them, except in cae« of ntter miafortune or deetitution, and then 
oafy on w, acale that ahould be in itaelf no temptation. 

So^ an estate, founded by the peopJe, would be the noblest 
momonent erer yet erected to any man, or on any occasion. Shak- 
qieare baa a decant monument at Stiatford, end an indifferent one 
in WeatmuiBter Abbey ; tbia would be one worthy of him &nd of the 
naticA which ^roduoDd him. It would take away &om ua a melan- 
cfaoly in^rolmumT *^^ oonfer on him and the Britiah people an 
auual ^ciTjr. 

fiat though moh a magnificent event, we fear, ia very for distant, 
it la « ploaanre to be able to state, that the house in wuich the poet 
was bcm has been purchasecLae well aa the a4j^ir)ing houses, ao as to 
be able to iaolat« the birthplaoe, and make it more eecure from fire^ 
Four tenements, adjoining the birthplace on the western side> were 
pnTohaaed by the 8tratford Committee, some yeare ago, for 8S(>/., and 
nre been paid for by degreee- The portion of tho property known 
as tho birthplano, iuoludjng the Swan and Maidenhead Inn, was 
nmhased at public auction in 1847, by the Stratford and London 
Oommhtoofi, for 3,000i, and conveTed in trust to Lord Carlisle, Mr. 
Ihomaa Amyott, Mr. Payne Collierj Dr. Thomas Thomson, of 
Leamington ; tmd Mr. Flower of Stratford and other gentlemen are 
trostoea for the former purchaaee. 

Since then, Mr. John Shakapeare^ the Orientalist, who claims to be 
descended &om an ancestor of the poet, has munificently paid into 
the Stratford Bank, in the name of nine local trueteea, the sum of 
IfiOOl^ for the purpose of purchaaing and taking down tho buildings 
immodiately adjoining the house, so as to cairy out the plan of ita 
■ecmre isolation, and to put it into thorough repair. I understand 
that Mr. Shakspeare is desirous to have the whole house enclosed iu 
s miniature CrysieJ Palace, to defend it ^m the destroying infiueDcea 
of the weather. The houae is now shown to the public free of 
chttgi^but anyone is at liberty to give a trifle towards the necessary 
ftxpense of keeping it open to inspection.

As a Specimen of hia GctioOf Johnson haa quoted hia deeoriptioii 
of tlio archangel Qabriel : 

" Hi took for Uls ■ cloud mott vttt and W^l, 
That a'cT lb* rnld-d^T *m> plerc«d ttanugb with Uffat ; 
Upon bii cheeki k Urclj bfaah hv ■prcad,

- Tbs Ghokut p>«a out ddi, * luif ii ludt." 

Thia comes but indifferently after a passage of Byron or Sbelley- 
But, in laot, Cowley eeema to have been a man who could not be 
permanently and decidedly anything. He could not rise out of 
affectation^ and dubious, l^way sort of positions, either in poetry 
(V in life. He would £fun pass for an ardent lover and general 
admirer of the fair sex, and published a poem called " The Miatresa," 
on the ground stated in the preface to one of ita editions, " That 
poets are scarcely thought freemen of their company, without 
pAyiog Bome duties, or obliging tbemaelvea to be true to love." Thia 
IS genuine Cowley : he did not write a poem on a love eubject 
bec»iae he woa full of the aubject, but because it seemed to bo 
eipectdd of a poet- It was not passion and admiration that fired 
hifa, bat it was neceasaiT to appearances that he should do It- He 
waa unluckily always spying about ou the outside of his subject, and 
never pluncine boldly into li. He was like a man who, instead of 
enjoying his house, should always bo standing in the &ont, and 
asking paasengers what they thought of it, and if it did not look very 
fine 1 or, if not, where he could lay on some plaster, or put up 
a Teranda T This sentiment is strikingly expressed by the very 
opening Una of hia poems : — -
