1764 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Charles Churchill

J. C., "On Mr. Churchill's Death" St. James's Chronicle (17 November 1764).



Prose-driving Dunces, waddling Fools in Rhime,
Scoundrels of every Kind, by Vengeance led;
Spit forth your Venom, poison all our Clime,
CHURCHILL, who scourg'd you to your holes, is dead!
