1807 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. William Gillespie

Anonymous, Review of Gillespie, Progress of Refinement; Poetical Register and Repository of Fugitive Poetry for 1805 (1807) 491.



We have received much pleasure from Mr. Gillespie's Progress of Refinement, and we recommend it to the perusal of our readers. Mr. Gillespie has a poetical mind, and no mean power of clothing his ideas in elegant and expressive language. His versification also possesses both grace and spirit.
