1798 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. William Cameron

Alexander Campbell, in Introduction to the History of Poetry in Scotland (1798) 303.



In 1780, the revd. Mr Cameron of Kirknewton, published (without his name) a volume of Poems on various subjects, Edinburgh, printed by Gordon and Murray. I have seen later productions ascribed to the muse of this gentleman, viz. Poetical dialogues on religion, in the Scotch dialect, between two gentlemen and two ploughmen, Edinburgh, printed by Peter Hill, at Thomson's head, Parliament Square, 1788, and an Ode on Lochiel's birth-day, 1796.
