Edward Rushton

Anonymous, Review of Rushton, Poems; Poetical Register for 1806-07 (1811) 505.



Among the minor poets, Mr. Rushton is entitled to a respectable station. There is much ease, simplicity, and feeling, and occasionally vigour, in his poems. His naval songs are among the best of the kind.
