1786 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Samuel Hayes

William Enfield, Review of Hayes, The Exodus, a Poem; The Monthly Review 74 (May 1786) 395.



There are few distinguishing features of poetical merit in this piece, to entitle it to particular attention. The Author, however, in obtaining Mr. Seaton's prize, 'has had his reward:' and the Public will not refuse some indulgence to a writer, who is thus called on to weave the web of verse as a task.
