1790 ca. ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. John Jortin

William Cole, Collectanea for Athenae Cantabrigienses, 1780 ca.; in Restituta or ... English Literature Revived 4 (1816) 409.



Dr. Jortin, in his Life of Erasmus, p. 550, 551, in his free way thus censures Mr. Baker, probably because Mr. Baker happened to think differently both in religion and politics from the more illuminated, and, shall I say, more time-serving Mr. Jortin, whose capital favourite, Mons. Le Clerc, had been attacked by Mr. Baker.
