The Rev. William Bagshaw Stevens, A.M. Head Master of the school at Repton, in Derbyshire, is a native of Abington, in Berkshire, and was elected a Demy of Magdalen College, Oxford, of which he is still a member. He very early distinguished himself at College by a publication, consisting of Indian Odes, and other Poems, remarkable for the boldness of their fancy. About 1782, he published a Poem in blank verse, intituled, Retirement; to which were annexed three of four very elegant and rich Odes. His contributions very often adorn your Magazine.
