1775 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Sir Charles Hanbury Williams

John Langhorne, Review of Williams, Odes; Monthly Review 53 (September 1775) 262.



This is a very bad and incorrect edition of the witty Knight's lewd poems — The publisher has, moreover, paid so little regard to decency in his selection, that he ought, by an order of the police, to be deprived of the use and comfort of breeches, during the remainder of his life.
