The Lyre: Fugitive Poetry of the Nineteenth Century (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Lyre: Fugitive Poetry of the Nineteenth Century
Campbell alone excited any particular atten tion. Wordsworth, Coleridge, and Southey had published many of their most beauti ful lyn'cal compositions, but as yet they had attracted little notice; and even those noble ballads of Campbell, on which his strongest claims to immortality will be found ultimately to rest, sank into insignificance before his longer and more elaborate poem.
From this epoch until the publication of the poetical romances of Sir falter Scott.
