1799 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Hannah More

Anonymous, "To Peter Pindar, on reading his intended satyrical Lines addressed to Miss Hannah More" The True Briton (29 October 1799).



On Envy's wings thy Muse malignant soars,
Not to correct, but poison wayward Youth;
Whilst MORE the various haunts of Vice explores,
To save its victims by the voice of Truth.
