1830 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

James Hogg

Henry Glassford Bell, in "The Men whom I get Glorious with!" Edinburgh Literary Journal (30 October 1830) 225.



There's HOGG, whom I get glorious with!—
I would not give our Shepherd Bard,
Though his laugh is loud, and his hand is hard,
For all the nimini-pimini things,
Who look like dolls that dance on strings!
Hogg's the man for a swig at the can—
So there's Hogg that I get glorious with!
