1803 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Anne Hunter

Anonymous, Review of Hunter, Poems; Poetical Register, and Repository of Fugitive Poetry for 1802 (1803) 434.



Many of the small poems in this volume have been long known to the public, no less by their own intrinsic merits than by the beautiful music composed for them by Haydn. The songs of Mrs. Hunter are of peculiar excellence. They possess great simplicity, sweetness, and elegance. The longer poems have also considerable merit.
