The Cabinet of Poetry, Vol. 2 of 6 free pdf Excerpt from The Cabinet of Poetry, Vol. 2 of 6: Containing the Best Entire Pieces to Be Found in the Works of the British Poets Abraham Cowley was the posthumous son of a reputable citizen of London, and born in 1618. At an early age, he evinced such a precocity of talents, that his mother, a woman of sense and virtue, felt an anxious desire to give him a learned education, and by means of some friends procured his admission into Westminster school. It is said, that the "Fairy Queen" of Spenser gave an impulse to his native propensity to the muses, and stamped his future life. At the age of thirteen he actually published a volume of poems, some of which were written when he was only ten. In 1636 he entered of Cambridge, where he composed the greatest part of his "Davideis," without neglecting the severer academical studies- but finding his situation uncomfortable there from the prevalence of the parliamentary faction, he removed in 1643 to Oxford, and was much noticed by the royalists for his unshaken loyalty and the suavity of his manners, particularly by the great and good Lord Falkland. Having in the sequel accompanied Queen Henrietta to Paris, he was afterwards employed in services of the highest confidence and honor for several years- but being dispatched to England in 1656, he was seized and committed to prison. By the intercession of some friends he procured his enlargement- soon after which he published his poems, and took a degree in physic at Oxford, though he never practised medicine as a profession.
