1814 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Thomas Stott

George Daniel, in The Modern Dunciad (1814; 1815) 51.



Some love a jingling rhyme with all their heart,
Where love and nonsense bear an equal part;
Like ROSA'S sonnets, in themselves a host,
ROSA, the Sappho of the Morning Post;
Or HAFIZ' Madrigals, but rarely seen,
A heap of sounding words which nothing mean.
