1765 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

George Colman

L-h-ne [John Langhorne?], "On Colman's Terence" London Chronicle (6 June 1765) 542.



When Terence liv'd — 'twas thought a merit
To imitate Menander's spirit;
But how superior is that wit,
Where Colman minds — what Terence writ.
