1812 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

William Thomas Fitzgerald

Anonymous, in "The Rejected Bards" The Satirist 11 (November 1812) 379 & 382n.



FITZGERALD'S ravings lose their worth;
Of fury full and sound,
His literary fund brings forth
No fund of "Twenty Pound."

Fitzgerald, who spouts one of his own effusions annually, at the Literary Fund dinner.
