1734 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

James Ralph

Maevius, "On Poet R—ph's studying of Painting and Architecture" Grub-Street Journal (24 October 1734).

This, speaking picture; that, mute poetry.
No architecture falls to poet's share,
But that which builds high castles in the air.
