1784 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Edmund Burke

B., "An Epigram" Morning Post and Daily Advertiser (17 June 1784).



The periods of Burke have been dwelt on with praise,
By those who his style with his master contrast,
And I think with some truth; for whatever he says,
One, at least, of his periods is certain to please,
In all his Orations — and that is, the last.
