1765 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

George Colman

Simon Satisfied, "On Colman's Terence" St. James's Chronicle (11 June 1765).



Terence by Colman! Lord forgive your Head:

I know them both — their Genius, Manner, Wit.—
Terrence has latiniz'd what Colman writ.

ANOTHER.
If this be call'd translated Comedy,
I never wish th' Original to see.
