THE PARADISE of Dainty Devices (1576-1606). EDITED BY HYDER EDWARD ROLLINS, HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, 1927.
Professor Hyder Edward Rollins has done a thorough, painstaking, scholarly piece of work that was well worth doing, for the Paradise, collected in the richest period of English literature, is animated with the spirit of poetry, and has an interest not merely for scholars but for every reader sensitive to the charm of Elizabethan verse.
