1763 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Charles Churchill

T. L., "Extempore on seeing the Print of Mr. Churchill in the Character of the Russian Hercules" St. James's Chronicle (6 August 1763).



Whilst Hogarth his Rival denotes by a Bear,
And the Dog does his own dear Likeness declare;
And honest rough Mortal in Churchill we see,
But the surly base Cure does with Hogarth agree.
