1773 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Oliver Goldsmith

B. G., "To Dr. Goldmsith" St. James's Chronicle (22 April 1773).



Goldsmith, ne'er mind what Criticks do,
Let Anti-Zoilus and Bossu
Defend your Play, or mock it;
Do which they will, 'tis just the same,
Both join to advertise its Name,
Both join to fill your Pocket.
