Monstrous Adversary

This chapter considers poems written by Oxford. No poem by Oxford is datable beyond 1593. But taking all 20 together, and giving the benefit of the doubt to the four ‘possible’, Oxford wrote one poem in trimeter, three in tetrameter; one in pentameter and tetrameter, seven in pentameter, four in poulter's measure, four in fourteeners, and one in a complex variant of poulter's measure and fourteeners. The bulk of the poems are stanzaic. Oxford's poems are remarkable not only for their variety but for their conservatism.

Keywords:   variety, stanzaic poetry, conservatism
