Excerpt from Minor Poems of Michael Drayton Michael drayton was born in Hartshill, near Atherstone, in Warwickshire, where a cottage, said to have been his, is still shown. He early became a page to Sir Henry Goodere, at Poles worth Hall: his own words give the best picture of his early years here.' His education would seem to have been good, but culinary; and it is very doubtful if he ever went to a university.' Besides the authors mentioned in the Epistle to Henry Reynold, he was certainly familiar with Ovid and Horace, and possibly with Catullus while there seems no reason to doubt that he read Greek, though it is quite true that his references to Greek authors do not prove any first-hand acquaintance. He understood French, and read Rabelais and the French sonneteers, and he seems to have been acquainted with Italian.' His knowledge of English literature was wide, and his judgement good: but his chief bent lay towards the history, legendary and Otherwise, of his native country, and his vast stores of learning on this subject bore fmit in the Polyolbion.
