1808 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

John Struthers

Anonymous, Review of Struthers, Poor Man's Sabbath; Poetical Register for 1808-09 (1812) 562.



In this volume a large portion of piety is happily blended with a very respectable portion of poetry. Mr. Struthers is an accurate observer of man and of nature, and has the talent of giving spirit and picturesque effect to his description of what he sees and feels. To his religious sentiments too much praise cannot be given.
