1858 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

John Scott of Amwell

Samuel Austin Allibone, in Critical Dictionary of English Literature (1858-71; 1882) 2:1959.



Scott of Amwell was, we believe, rather a popular versifier in his day; but he was far inferior to Mr. [Bernard] Barton. He was rather given to drivelling, and did not fully and freely exercise the little power he possessed.
