1763 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

William Woty

Anonymous, in The Triumph of the Beasts, a Satire (1763) 8.



Humanity will be receiv'd by hawks
Before tautology abandons Fa—kes;
Say, will the large republic of mites
Quit a good cheese for all that W. writes?
Whose genius, charity, and wit records
The scribbling excrements of costive lords.
