Rev. Thomas Yalden

Robert Southey, in Specimens of the Later English Poets (1807) 1:334.



Yalden obtained a place among the Poets under the critical administration of Doctor Johnson. As his Hymn to Darkness has been pronounced his best Poem it is here selected, for what has been admired may possibly find admirers again.
