Book Description:
Handy collections of the work of the lesser and more romantic poets of the eighteenth century are rare, so that this volume will be doubly welcome to students of that period, affording as it does an opportunity to estimate the relative merits of Lady Winchilsea, Parnell, Dyer, Green, and Collins. The love of natural scenery manifest in the writing of these poets, in an age when such a taste was unfashionable, is perhaps the very element that has kept them fresh in our memory. Although for his peculiar taste in this respect Dyer drew down on his head the condemnation of Dr. Johnson, he yet inspired, for this very reason, a sonnet to his honour from Wordsworth.
