1773 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Oliver Goldsmith

J., "On the Successful Reception of the New Comedy, Mistakes of a Night" General Evening Post (20 March 1773).



"Mistakes of a Night,"
Will set matters right,
As 'tis by all parties agreed;
From this lucky hit,
For once a poor wit
May turn out a GOLDSMITH indeed!
