Samuel Johnson : London: A Poem in Imitation of the Third Satire of Juvenal

'The Reverend Dr Douglas, now Bishop of Salisbury, to whom I am indebted for some obliging communications, was then a student at Oxford, and remembers well the effect which "London" produced. Every body was delighted with it; and there being no name to it, the first buzz of the literary circles was "here is an unknown poet, greater even than Pope".'

Century: 1700-1799     Reader/Listener/Group: John Douglas      Print: Unknown
