1806 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. John Bidlake

Anonymous, Review of Bidlake, Poetical Works; Poetical Register and Repository of Fugitive Poetry for 1804 (1806) 491-92.



Some of the poems contained in this volume, have, as separate publications, already been noticed in the Poetical Register for 1802 and 1803. In the higher rank of poets Mr. Bidlake cannot aspire to be placed; but he is an elegant and pleasing writer, and a man of a liberal and cultivated mind.
