Stephen Hawes


Gluck & Morgan

The Minor Poems of Stephen Hawes, ed. Florence W. Gluck and Alice B. Morgan, EETS 271 (London, 1974).


There are no known examples of Hawes's own handwriting. Extracts from three of his works appear in two sixteenth-century miscellanies (HaS 1-2, HaS 4). There survives also a manuscript of an elegy on Henry VIII (HaS 3) which used to be attributed to John Skelton, but which has been more recently assigned to Hawes on stylistic grounds.
