Henryson, Robert oldala, Angol életrajz
Robert Henryson, -Henryson also spelled Henderson- (born 1420/30?—died c. 1506), Scottish poet, the finest of early fabulists in Britain. He is described on some early title pages as schoolmaster of Dunfermline—probably at the Benedictine abbey school—and he appears among the dead poets in William Dunbar’s Lament for the Makaris, which was printed about 1508. Henryson’s longest work is The Morall Fabillis of Esope the Phrygian, Compylit in Eloquent & Ornate Scottis, a version of 13 fables based mainly on John Lydgate and William Caxton and running to more than 400 seven-line stanzas.
