1847 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

William Sotheby

Cyrus Redding, in "Life and Reminiscences of Thomas Campbell" New Monthly Magazine 79 (February 1847) 245.



If the poet [Campbell] had an antipathy to Hazlitt, it was not his common feeling towards men of genius. He had a very high opinion of Sotheby, for example, as a poet, in which there would not be many found to agree with him beyond the unquestionable elegance and classic correctness of that writer.
