1808 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Elizabeth Trefusis

Anonymous, in Review of Trefusis, Poems and Tales; in The Cabinet 4 (1808) 396.



With many faults, these poems possess great excellencies: an elegant simplicity is their prevailing character; and the amiable author, who survived the publication but a few months, seems to have been careful to blend the purest morality with the effusions of her fancy. We cordially recommend them to her fair country-women.
