1809 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. James Scott

Nathan Drake, in Essays Illustrative of the Rambler (1809-10) 2:315.



JAMES SCOTT, D. D. a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, and afterwards rector of Simonburn, was the author of several sermons, tracts, and religious poems; his contribution to the World, as consisting merely of an Ode to Sculpture, occupying No. 200, can, of course, give him no claim to the character of an essayist; nor will it be considered, in a poetical light, as rising much above mediocrity.
