In “A Remembrance of some English Poets,” the poet Richard Barnfield praises Edmund Spenser, Samuel Daniel, Michael Drayton, and Shakespeare. According to Barnfield, Shakespeare’s honey-flowing veins produce poetry that pleases the world, and Venus and Adonis and Lucrece have placed his name “in fame’s immortal book.” The ode that follows, “As it fell upon a day,” appears as Shakespeare’s in The Passionate Pilgrim in 1599, but because of its early appearance here, it is now attributed to Barnfield.
