  • (n.): A genre of 17th century English verse that extols the virtue, stability and fruitfulness of the country estate of the poet's patron and his personal character. Examples include Upon Appleton House by Marvell, and Ben Johnson's To Penshurst. Kissing up to the landed gentry, not to put too fine a point on it.
