1798 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. John Ogilvie

Alexander Campbell, in Introduction to the History of Poetry in Scotland (1798) 301.



In 1777, John Ogilvie, D.D. published his Rona, a poem, in seven books. This poet, though in many parts of his works incorrect, and unharmonious, is possessed of a masculine and classical vein, that seems rich and inexhaustible.
