1801 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

George Dyer

Alexander Thomson, in The British Parnassus, at the Close of the Eighteenth Century (1801) 39.



GEORGE DYER too here, that benevolent spirit,
A station deserves, for his Ode-writing merit,
As a sample whereof, on which no one can trade ill,
You may take his ASTERIA rocking the cradle.
