1821 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Felicia Hemans

Reginald Heber to R. J. Wilmot, 14 June 1821; Life of Reginald Heber (1830) 42.



Mrs. Hemans has written a tragedy on the subject of the Sicilian Vespers, of which it is saying too little to praise it as better than any which, for several years back, has been brought on the stage, and which I think, would really make a popular acting play. It is by far the best of her productions.
