1794 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Edmund Burke

Anonymous, "Epigram" Morning Chronicle (23 September 1794).



Says Burke, "where stood France? I beheld a great chasm,
The Devil of Discord most certain has 'em."
But, don't think, Mr. Burke, our discernment to chouse,
What a chasm you've made, friend, in Burlington House.
