1826 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Mrs. Cornwell Baron Wilson

Anonymous, in Review of Wilson, Hours at Home; The Literary Gazette (13 May 1826) 292.



If there is interest in kindly affections, domestic ties, and simple and natural feeling, expressed in the language of poetry, we may safely recommend this little volume to our readers. Much of it has already been before the public: — we must, therefore, destroy its novelties as little as possible, and content ourselves with one short specimen.... So much for the inside; and we must observe of the outward gifts of this pretty volume, they are such as fit it for a lady's boudoir, or a drawing-room table.
