Dickens was a novelist, but has "benefactor" in Great Expectations,
and S possibly was an adopted bastard from a benefactor at court.
But where are S's novels? Where are Dickens poems?

On the basis of originality as renaissance men of the same
"time-spirit," I would compare S with Burton, Milton, and Jonson. To
an extent, they seem to be "rhapsodes" inspired by the Muses?

Adding Spenser would make the deck complete?
