1762 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

George Pooke

Ralph Griffiths, Review of Pooke, An Address to his most gracious Majesty; The Monthly Review 27 (August 1762) 158-59.



Our Readers have already had a sufficient specimen of Mr. Pooke's rare talents for poetical composition, in the short account we gave of his Odes: see Review, vol. XVII. page 281. We were in hopes this Writer had taken his leave of the press long ago; having heard nothing of him for some time past: but now he threatens the world with more publications. How much are Kings and Reviewers to be pitied!
