Peter Pindar : [unknown]

'Anne Grant loved books, but felt guilty about literary pleasure: she enjoyed Byron's poems but worried about their morality, and was "fully convinced of the bad tendency" of the works of Peter Pindar because of "the amusement I derive from them".'

Century: 1700-1799     Reader/Listener/Group: Anne Grant [nee MacVicar]      Print: Unknown


Peter Pindar : Tales of the Hoy, interspersed with song

'Took Pindar's "Tales of Hoy" to the library; I think it much inferior to most of his other publications which I have seen. Corinna's "Epitaph", which I have transcribed is however one of his prettiest productions. Brought the 1st vol of "Remains of Living Authors".'

Peter Pindar : [Poems]

Letter to Miss Dunbar May 4 1802 'I cannot tell you how much I admire and despise Peter*. He is every way original, and most original in this respect, that I know not that ever any other object at once excited my contempt and admiration. His humour is most peculiar, most unaffected, most irresistible. Yet, for what end Providence entrusted a weapon so dangerous in the hands of one who avows his disregard to everything sacred and venerable, is very difficult for us to conjecture ?[continues comments] [footnote]*Peter Pindar, a witty, but low, and mischievous writer of verses.'

Century: 1700-1799 / 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Anne Grant [nee MacVicar]      Print: Book
