1812 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Sir James Bland Burges

Anonymous, in "The Rejected Bards" The Satirist 11 (November 1812) 378, 382n.



Sir JAMES BLAND BURGES, softest name,
Among the Muses' train,
Essays his skill, but sinks with shame,
Ne'er to revive again.

Burges, author of the Exodiad, and other stupid works.
