Terens in Englysh, or the translacyon out of Latin into

Englyíh of the first comedy of Tyrens callyd Andria.
Supposed to be printed by J. Raftell*


[ocr errors]

'* As the following metrical introduction to this play, relates chiefly to the improvements at that time supposed to have been made in the English language, I could not prevail on my self to suppress it.

The Poet,
The famous renown through the worlde is sprong
Of poetys ornate that usyd to indyte
Of dyvers matters in theyr moder tong
Some toke uppon them translacions to wryte
Some to compile bokys for theyr delyte
But in our Engiish tong for to speke playn
I rede but of few have take any gret payn.
Except master Gowre which furst began
And of moralite wrote ryght crafrely
Than mafter Chaucer that excellent man
Which wrote as compendious as elygantly
As in any other tong ever dyd any
Ludgate also which adournyd our tong
Whole noble famys through the world be sprong.
By these men our tong is amplyfyed so
That we therin now translate as well may
As in eny other tongis other can do
Yet the Greke tong and Laten dyvers men fay
Have many wordys can not be Englyihid this day
So lyke wyse in Englysh many wordys do habound
That no Greke nor Laten for them can be found.
And the cause that our tong is so plenteouse now
For we kepe our Englyth contynually
And of other tongis many wordis we borow
Which now for Englyih we use and occupy
These thingis have gyven corage gretly
To dyvers and speeyally now of late
To them that this comedy have translate.
Which all difcrete men now do berech
And specyally lernyd men to take no dyfdayn
Though this be compylydin our vulgare ipech
Yet lernyng thereby tome men mayattayn
For they that in this comedy have take payn

Pray you to correct where faut shal be found

And of our matter so here is the ground.
In the metrical peroration to this piece, is the following stanza :

Wherfore the translatours now require you this
Yf ought be amys ye wold confyder
The Englysh almost as short as the Latten is
And still to kepe ryme a dyffycult matter
To make the lentence opynly to appere
Which if it had a long expocysion

Then were it a comment and no translacyon. * At Stationer's hall in 1597, “the second comedy of Terence, called Eunuchuswas entered by W. Leake; and the first and second comedie in i6oo.
