Excerpt from The Works of Oliver Goldsmith, Vol. 6
These Essays, from The British Magazine, The Busy Body, and other periodical publications, are attributed to Goldsmith on the authority of Isaac Reed, Thomas Percy, Thomas Wright (a printer), and James Prior, Esq. Of the genuineness of some I have more than a suspicion. Those on Taste and Poetry (nos. 14 to 20 inclusive) contain an appreciation of Scotch poets (thomson, Armstrong, and Blacklock). Of blank verse, and of new systems of versiiication, very unlike the ascertained writings and known opinions of Goldsmith. Others, however, have the weight of bullion and mint-mark of Goldsmith himself.'
