Search

(1855)


With a Life, Critical Dissertation, and Explanatory Notes By the Rev. George Gilfillan.



Of the Genius and Poetical Works of John Dryden:

In our Life of Dryden we promised to say something about the question, how far is a poet, particularly in the moral tendency and taste of his writings, to be tried--and either condemned or justified--by the character and spirit of his age? To a rapid consideration of this question we now proceed, before examining the constituent elements or the varied fruits of the poet's genius.
