1778 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Hannah More

Anonymous, "Miss Hannah M—" General Advertiser and Morning Intelligencer (20 April 1778).



Some pitiful elves,
Judging her from themselves,
Depreciate her claim to Parnassus;
But she to the skies
Shall on Pegasus rise,
And leave their own earth to the asses.
