1795 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Moses Mendez

Robert Anderson, in Works of the British Poets (1795) 11:79.



The collection printed for Urquhart and Richardson [A Collection of the most esteemed Pieces of Poetry, by Moses Mendez, 1767] is commonly, but erroneously ascribed to Mendez, who died in 1758. His imitations of Spenser, and other poems, are highly deserving of republication, and were originally recommended by the present writer [Robert Dodsley] to be inserted in this collection of classical English poetry.
