1798 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Thomas James Mathias

Philomathes, "On the Author of The Pursuits of Literature" Morning Chronicle (8 March 1798).



A fancied Poet, foe to Truth and Freedom,
Scribbles Greek Notes, to shew you he can read 'em;
On Worth and Talents wreaks his desp'rate grudge,
But quite mistakes the Hangman for the Judge!
