1856 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Edward Thurlow

Samuel Rogers, in Table Talk (1856) 279.



Moore borrowed from me Lord Thurlow's Poems, and forthwith wrote that ill-natured article on them in The Edinburgh Review. It made me angry; for Lord Thurlow, with all his eccentricity, was a man of genius: but the public chose to laugh at him, and Moore, who always follows the world's opinion, of course did so too. I like Lord Thurlow's verses on Sidney.
