1815 ca. ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

John Taylor Esq.

George Colman the younger, "Impromptu" 1815 ca.; Gentleman's Magazine 102 (December 1832) 546.



Nine Taylors (as the proverb goes)
Make but one man, though many clothes,
But thou art not, we know, like those,
My Taylor!

No — thou can'st make, on Candour's plan,
Two of thyself — (how few that can!)
The Critic and the Gentleman,
My Taylor!
