1763 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

David Mallet

Anonymous, "On the Posthumous Works of Lord Bolingbroke, published by David Malloch" St. James's Chronicle (12 February 1763).



Who knows but impious Bolingbroke,
Who held Eternity a Joke,
Now feels it to his Pain?
But of his Works it may be said,
In Spite of Malloch they are dead,
Never to rise again.
