1793 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Lady Catherine Rebecca Manners

John Wolcot, in Review of Manners, Poems; The Monthly Review NS 11 (July 1793) 319.



In the poems before us, Lady Manners has ventured forth a candidate for a seat on the British Parnassus, and she will certainly be allowed a distinguished eminence on the sacred mountain. A vein of ease, elegance, and taste, pervades most of this lady's compositions; and, which has no small weight with us, her Muse is frequently enlisted under the banners of Virtue.
