1786 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Dr. John Wolcot

D—s Pallet, "Epigram" St. James's Chronicle (29 June 1786).



Poor Peter Pindar's Lyric Odes,
Are Food and Physick fit for Toads;
And he's a snarling Critick—
For now the Truth I'll let you know,
In every Page his Bow, wow, wow,
Will make the D—l himself sick.
Beccles, June 26, 1786.
