1786 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Dr. John Wolcot

Anonymous, "Epigram. On Peter Pindar" Morning Chronicle and London Advertiser (20 July 1786).



If Peter Pindar was chief Judge of Hell,
Says West! how very few their souls would save;
But as it is, who minds the sour critick's yell,
For Cynic dogs will always bark and rave.
