Spenser and the Tradition : English Poetry 1579-1830 (via).A bloody enormous database of poetry and criticism charting the influence of Edmund Spenser on the English poetic tradition.

I set my sail on the cyber sea To find some Easter poesy, But all I found were greeting cards, And drivel from half-witted bards. And so instead, I'll post this link, In hope you do not think it stinks, And hope that you enjoy this mission To map the ole Spenserian tradition. (Not Spenserian, and not strictly speaking true. Anyway, Here, here, and here are poems, one for each day of the Easter weekend).
