Overview

Excerpt from Christ's Tears Over Jerusalem: Whereunto Is Annexed a Comparative Admonition to London

Of Thomas Nash the noted controversialist, whose literary squabbles with Gabriel Harvey are so full of bitter ribaldry, and whose apology for the character of his unhappy companion Robert Greene contains so many curious notices of the petty manners of the Metropolis, especially among hireling authors of his own time, much has been said in almost all the late publications which have any allusion to Elizabethan literature. The Editor thinks, therefore, that nothing less than novelty of material would justify an attempt to fill the pages of the present Preface with a Memoir of this author.

Nash took his degree of A. B. at St. John's College, in Cambridge, in 1585.

It is said, that a life of extravagance and debauchery brought this imprudent man to extreme distress and misery. The present Tract was written, as he himself states, in his "Address to the Reader," in the sober hours of repentance, when experience and suffering taught him to look with horror on the madness of his former career.
