Evidence:
[Letter from Byron to Anabella Milbanke, 28 Nov 1814]. 'I think Southey's "Roderick" as near perfection as poetry can be - which considering how I dislike that school I wonder at. However, so it is. If he had never written anything else, he might safely stake his fame on the last of the Goths'.
