Not illustrated. 1825 Excerpt: ... terrible Lady Macbeth? can it make even the delightful Sylphs, trembling over the fume of a coffee-pot, as poetical, in the loftiest sense of the word, as Ariel, and the elves of moonlight in the Midsummer Night's Dream? Would any person of sound sense, to say nothing of the acknowledged principles of criticism, with only these characters in his thought, assert, that Pope was in the First Class Of His Art, or, to be compared with that solitary master spirit, who embodied forth such lovely creations? I believe the very assertion would excite derision. But these characters are not to be compared, you will say--they are not of the same kind! Doubtless! they are of a very different kind, of a kind m In Pope's Epistle Ob Mai). "the highest-order of poetry," which the others are not, however perfectly and admirably drawn, nor can any genius make them such. It is something at last to find Mr. Roscoe does not echo the nonsensical invective of my calling "Pope no poet!" Perhaps it may, in time, be admitted, that in my criterion of poetry I have spoken of " Passions" as the most essential part; tho the complacency with which this word has been omitted by so many critical opponents, not excepting Mr. Roscoe, seems almost to exceed belief. A fair arguer would reason in this manner. "Let me look at these fundamental propositions again. Can I say that Mr. Bowles requires bare "unselected nature?" No:.for I see in the proposition, and as it has been enforced in the answer to Lord Byron, he speaks of the "sublime and beautiful" In Nature. Can I say that Art is as poetical as what is Sublime, &c. in Nature, when I recollect that the most beautiful images from Art are rendered poetical by associations with Nature, e...

Book Description London: Hurst Robinson and co, 1825. Two works in one volume, 8vo, pp. xi, [i], 111, [1] colophon; xvi, 190, [1] advertisements, [1] colophon; an attractive volume in contemporary half calf, spine with morocco label (a little rubbed). Bookplate of John M. Traherne, FRS. A presentation copy of two late works by William Lisle Bowles (1762-1850). The flyleaf to the volume - but which can only have accompanied the first of the two works - is inscribed to John Montgomery Traherne 'from the Author', and dated 1 Jun 1823. It is quite likely that the second work, a defence of his strictures on Pope and his poetry, is also a presentation copy, but there is no physical evidence of that. Bowles's poetry had had a profound influence on the young S.T. Coleridge when he was still at school. John Montgomery Traherne (1788-1860) was from Glamorganshire, and one of the most distinguished Welsh antiquaries of his time. Bought by Max Ede in Cardiff in 1958. Seller Inventory # 19485
