9781331810353: Epigrammes in the Oldest Cut and Newest Fashion (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Epigrammes in the Oldest Cut and Newest Fashion

Of Weever himself it is not necessary to say anything here, for the little that is known about him is set forth in the usual books of reference. For the understanding of these epigrams it need only be remembered that he came of a Lancashire family, and was from 1594. To about 1598 a student at Queens' College, Cambridge. He is supposed, on leaving the University, to have returned to his Lancashire home and to have there spent the next few years.

It seems likely that a number of the epigrams are taken from or suggested by Latin sources. In one or two cases such borrowings are referred to in the notes, but no attempt has been made to investigate the question systematically, as this could not have been done save at an expenditure of time and labour altogether out of proportion to the probable results. Weever was no great epigrammatist, and it seems of little moment whence he derived his material.
