IN HEYWODUM. XXIX.
John Heywood, the well-known epigrammatist and interlude-wnter. His Proverbs were edited in 1874, with a pleasantly-written Introduction and useful notes, by Mr. Julian Sharman.
Dyce refers to a passage of Sir John Harmgton's Metamorphosis of Ajax, 1596 —” This Haywood for his proverbs and epigrams is not yet put down by any of our country, though one [marginal note, M. Davies] doth indeed come near him, that graces him the more in saying he puts, him down.” He quotes also from Bastard's Ckrestoleros, 1598 (Lib. II. Ep. 15; Lib. in. Ep. 3, and Freeman's Rubbe and a Great Cast (Pt in Ep. 100), allusions to the present epigram.
