1766 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. James Scott

W. Inkhorn, "The Perils of Poetry: an Epigram" St. James's Chronicle (6 March 1766).



While Scot, like a Strumpet, bawls Whore first aloud,
And swaggers in Print he will cane us—
Who is there so mean, or so weak in the Croud,
That can't cudgel Anti Sejanus?
