Nicolas Vauquelin Des Yveteaux : [a sonnet]

'The Sonnet of Mr des Yveteaux the odd Man who shut himself up with a Wench, & played Shepherd & Shepherdess when he was past threescore; beginning Avoir peu de parens, moins de Train que de rente &c. resembles both in its Style & Measure our Ballad of the old Man's wish - without Gout or Stone in a gentle decay. I wonder which was written first, or whether one of the Writers ever heard of the other - most probably not.'

Century: 1700-1799     Reader/Listener/Group: Hester Lynch Thrale      Print: Unknown
