1809 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Henry Headley

Anonymous, "Literary Opinions: Mr. Headley" The Cabinet NS 1 (May 1809) 409.



The poetical world is exceedingly obliged to Mr. Headley for his ingenious and judicious selections of ancient poetry. The characters he gives of the several poets are discriminative and just, and are drawn with a vigorous and masterly hand. It would be worth the while of any gentleman of taste and leisure to re-publish some of the entire works, of which Mr. Headley has made so elegant a selection.
