"I must express my sincere admiration of thiB work.

That Mr. Warton has far surpassed all who have gone before him in the same t;)*k, in regard to rendering the author's sense with exactness and perspicuity, will, we are persuaded, be readily allowed by every candid reader that is capable of judging; nor is this his only merit: there is a classical purity and correctness in his styl», and an easy, harmonious flow in his versification."—Lon.

"Warton's translation [of the Georgics] may in many instnnre, be found more faithful and conclee than Dryden's; hut it wants that elastic and idiomatic freedom by which Dryden reconciles us to his faults, and exhibits rather the diligence of a scliol-ir than the spirit of a poet."—Thomas Campbell: Sf>ecimeiis, tilil.

In early life he meditated a history of the revival of literature; about 1784 he issued proposals for, and announced as preparing for the pross, a history of Grecian, Roman, Italian, anil French Poetry, in Four Parts, 2 vols. 4to: he also desired to complete his brother's (see Warton, Thomas, D.D.)

Warton, Thomas, father of the preceding and of the succeeding, was a Fellow of Magdalene College, Oxford, and Professor of Poetry in that university, 171828, and afterwards Vicar of Basingstoke, Hampshire, and Cobham, Surrey. After his death, in 1746, his son Joseph published, by subscription, Poems on Several Occasions, by the Rev. Thomas Warton, Lon., 1748, 8vo. The volume concludes with two poems on the death of the author: one by his daughter Jane, (d. 1809, aged 87,) the other by Joseph, the editor. See Nichols's Lit.

abusive, ungentlemanly rhapsody was written by William Hoggins, (p. 910, supra,) who had engaged Warton in the translation of Ariosto, but cancelled the bargain, and thus attacked Warton, because he ranked Spenser above Ariosto.

Warton brings his History down to the early part of the 17th century. It was though! (see Nichols's Illust. of Lit., viii. 372) that Ritson's ferocity drove him from the track. In 1785, when he published Milton's Juvenile Poems, ho promised the speedy publication of vol. iv.; and in Wit 1, in his volume of Poems, vol. iv., to be com


pletcd by his brother, Joseph Warton, was again announced for speedy publication, (see, also, in Wool's Life of Joseph Warton, a letter of the latter, dated 1792.) Subsequently Thomas Park, an able hand, was employed upon a continuation ; and as late as 132(3, Robert Southey (see his Life and Correspondence, ch. xxix.: Letter to G. C. Bedford, Feb. IS, 1826) was engaged to finish the work in three or four volumes octavo, at £500 each. But this design also came to naught. For reviews and notices of the first edition, see: of vol. i., Mon.

**A work which, though neither profound nor brilliant, will never mislead the inquiring student."—Lon. Athen., 1861, ii. WW, (7- ».)

We adduce some opinions on Warton's History:

"The progress of romance and the state of learning in the middle agea are illustrated by Mr. Thomas Warton with the taste of a poet and the minute diligence of au antiquarian."—Oibbox: Decline and Fait, ch. xxxviii., n.

See, also, ch. xlii. n., and Brydges's Phillips's Thcat. Poet. Anglic, vii., lx.

"A work of great size, and, partially speaking, of great interest, from the perusal of which we rise, our fancy delighted with beautiful imagery and witli the happy analysis of ancient tale and song, but certainly with very vague ideas of the history of English poetry. The error seems to lye in a total neglect of plan and system; for, delighted with every interesting topic which occurred, the historical poet pursued it to its utmost verge, without considering that these digressions, however beautiful and interesting in themselves, abstracted alike his own attention and that of the reader from the professed purpose of his book. Accordingly, Warton's History of English Poetry lias remained, and will always remain, an immense commonplace-book of memoirs to serve, for such an history."Sir Walter Scott: Edin. Rev., iv, (April, 1804) 153.

See, also, vii. (Jan. 1806) 389, also by Sir Walter Scott.

•' An immense treasury of materials."—William Godwin : Life of Chaucer.

"His diligence is indefatigable, and his learning stupendous; but I believe every reader, except a mere antiquary, will regret that. iu*tead of a regular progressive history, he did not adopt the form of a critical dissertation, interspersed with anecdotes. Ills taste, which is frequently buried under piles of cumbrous erudition, would have had a freer scope."—Greex: Diary of a Lover of Lit.: Lon. Gent. Mag., 18-"U, i. 10.

"The most singular combination of extraordinary talents and attainments, uniting the deep And minute researches of the antiquary with the elegance of the classical scholar and the skill of the practised writer; the style vigorous and manly, the observations acnte and ju*t, and the views of the subject extensive and accurate. . . . His consummate taste and discriminating Judgment may on all occasions be implicitly trusted.''—Sir S. Egertox Hrydges.

••Well. I have read Mr. Warton's book; and shall I tell you what I think of it? I never saw so many entertaining particulars crowded together with so little entertainment and vivacity. The facts are overwhelmed by one another, as Johnson's sense is by words: they are all equally Btrong. Mr. War ton has amassed all the parts and learning of four centuries, and all the impression that remains is, that those four ages had no parts or learning at all. There is not a gleam of poetry in their com positions between the Scalds and Chaucer. ... I have dipped

into Mr. Warton's second volume, which seems more nnentertatning than the former. ... I have very near finished Warton, but, antiquary as I am, it was a tough achievement. He has dipped into an incredible ocean of dry and obsolete authors of the dark ages, and has brought up more rubbish than riches; but the latter chapters, especially on the progress and revival of the theatre, are more entertaining: however, it is very fatiguing to wade through the muddy poetry of three or four centuries that had never a poet."—Horace WaJpole to Rev. W. Cole, April 7, 1774, and to Ret. W. Mason, April 8,1778, And April 18, 1788: Watpole's Letters, ed. 18(11, vi. 72. vii. 50, 64.

''In this latter author's [Warton's] antiquarian mud we are already above knee-deep, and we must on as fast as we are able. . . . 1 trust that posterity (if posterity deserves it) will be blessed with some future anecdotist like one I could name, . . . that will select out of those three quartos.

"He loved poetry dearly—and he wrote its history well; that book being a mine."—Prop. Wilson: Slackw. Mag., xxx. 483: An /four's Talk about Poetry.

"We have nothing historical as to our own poetry but the prolix volumes of Warton. They have obtained, in my opinion, full as much credit as they deserve: without depreciating a book in which so much may bo found, and which has been so great a favourite with the literary part of the public, it may be observed that its errors as to fact, especially in names and dates, are extraordinarily frequent, and that the criticism, in points of taste, is not of a vory superior kind."—Hall Am: Lit.
