1798 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Thomas James Mathias

Occident, "On the Author of the Pursuits of Literature" Whitehall Evening Post (23 August 1798).



A fancied Poet, foe to Truth and Freedom,
Scribbles Greek notes, to shew you he can read 'em,
On Worth and Talents wreaks his envious grudge,
But quite mistakes the Hangman for the Judge.
