1788 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Henry James Pye

Anonymous, in Catalogue of five hundred Celebrated Authors (1788).



A poet, endowed with some elegance of expression, and some harmony of versification; but totally destitute of imagination and genius. He published separately the Progress of Refinement, a poem; and Shooting, a Poem; and has since republished them, with several other pieces, in two volumes duodecimo.
