ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Hugh Mulligan

(1760 ca.-1788 fl.)


Information about Hugh Mulligan appears to be lacking, though we learn from Edward Rushton's undated elegy that he died in distress. He appears to have been of Irish origins, though he worked in Liverpool, where D. J. O'Donoghue reports that he was acquainted with William Roscoe.
