Yet well perceiu'd, how Fortune made me then The enuie of my sexe, and wonder vnto Delia with. A "Samuel Daniel" is recorded in 1586 as being the servant of Edward Stafford, the Baron of Delia with and the English ambassador in France.
This poem - ALC - is written in the same hand as that of the sonnets and carries a covering address to Southampton by Shakespeare. Th'vnstained vaile, which innocents adornes, Th'vngathred Rose, defended with the thornes And safe mine honor stood, till that in truth, One of my Sexe, of place and nature bad, Was set in ambush to intrap my youth.
Cease dreames, th'ymagery of our day desires, To modell foorth the passions of the morrow: Neuer let rysing Sunne approue you lyers, To adde more griefe to aggrauat my sorrow. As brought out in Hidden Life, each of these two poems was directed at securing benefits from the model for its hero, the young Southampton. Come death the Anchor-holde of all my thoughtes, My last Resort whereto my soule appealeth; For all too long on earth my fancy dotes, Whilst my best blood my younge desi[er]s sealeth.
O Iealousie, daughter of Enuie and Loue, Most wayward issue of a gentle Sire; Fostred with feares, thy fathers ioyes t'improue, Mirth-marring Monster, borne a subtill lier; Hatefull vnto thy selfe, flying thine owne desire: Feeding vpon suspect that doth renue thee, Happy were Louers if they neuer knew thee Thou hast 1592. thousand Gates thou enterest by, Condemning trembling passions to our hart; Hundred ey'd Arguseuer waking Spie, Pale Hagge, infernall Furie, pleasures smart, Enuious Obseruer, prying in euery part; Suspicious, fearefull, gazing still about thee, O would to God that loue could be without thee Thou didst depriue through false suggesting feare Him of content, and me of libertie: The onely good that women hold so deere, And turnst my freedome to captiuitie, First made a prisoner, ere an enemie.
Delia with Poeticall Essayes 1599 also include 'A Letter from Octavia to Marcus Antonius'. To an edition of Delia and Rosamond, in 1594, was added the tragedy of Cleopatra, a severe study in the manner of the ancients, in alternately rhyming heroic verse, diversified by stiff choral interludes.
Here is the centre of all beauties best, Excepting Delialeft t'adorne the West. In 1585 he worked for the English ambassador in Paris before going to Italy. The complaint of Rosamond opned were mine eyes to looke therein; For first we taste the fruit, then see our sin. her brow, read her troubled brow Sonnet 44. I hope this - probably the most famous, Sonnet 39 - will correct the omission. Chastitie and Beautie, which were deadly foes, Liue reconciled friends within her brow: And had she pittie to conioine with those, Then who had heard the plaints I vtter now.
Iudge those whom chance depriues of sweetest treasure, What tis to lose a thing we hold so deere: The best delight, wherein our soule takes pleasure, The sweet of life, that penetrates so neere.
As a gnomic writer Daniel approaches Chapman, but is far more musical and coherent.
Yet I protest my high aspyring will, Was not to dispossesse her of her right: Her soueraignty should haue remayned still, I onely sought the blisse to haue her sight.
