Reading Experience:

??And whom do you estimate after Crabbe?? ?I am disposed to say Hogg. His ?Queen?s wake? is splendid and impassioned work. I like it for its varieties and its utter simplicity? Take my word in what I say of Crabbe and Hogg. They have struck the cord of my taste, but they are not, perhaps, the first men of the day.?
