1810 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Robert Bedingfield

Alexander Chalmers, in Life of Warton; Works of the English Poets (1810) 18:77.



It was [Edward] Moore, the editor of the World, who projected a Magazine soon after the conclusion of that paper, and told the two Wartons, that "he wanted a dull plodding fellow of one of the universities, who understood Latin and Greek!" Mr. Bedingfield, one of Dodsley's poets, and Gataker, the surgeon, were to be concerned in this Magazine, but Moore's death prevented the execution of the scheme.
