“These pieces commonly go under the title of poetical amusements ; but these amusements have sometimes gained as much reputation to their authors, as works of a more serious nature.

“ It is surprising how much the mind is entertained and enlivened by these little poetical compositions, as they turn upon subjects of gallantry, satire, tenderness, politeness, and everything, in short, that concerns life, and the affairs of the world.”

PLINY TO TUSCUS.
