1844 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. George Croly

Robert Chambers, in Cyclopaedia of English Literature (1844; 1850) 2:448.



The Rev. George Croly, rector of St. Stephens, Walbrook, London, is, like Mr. Milman, a correct and eloquent poet, but deficient in interest, and consequently little read. His poetical works are, Paris in 1815; The Angel of the World; Gems from the Antique, &c. Mr. Croly has published several works in prose: Salathiel, a romance founded on the old legend of the Wandering Jew; a Life of Burke, in two volumes; and a work on the Apocolypse of St. John. This gentleman is a native of Ireland, and educated at Trinity college, Dublin.
