Immortal Spenser, no frailty hath thy fame but the imputation of this idiot's friendship!
Soul of the age! The applause, delight, the wonder of our stage! My Shakespeare , rise; I will not lodge thee by Chaucer or Spenser , or bid Beaumont lie A little further, to make thee a room; Thou art a monument, without a tomb, And art alive still, while thy book doth live, And we have wits to read , and praise to give .Ben Jonson
Thee gentle Spenser fondly led; But me he mostly sent to bed.walter savage landor
