Cary, H. F. (n.d.). Lives of the English Poets. Retrieved from

Excerpt: THE papers of which this volume is composed originally appeared in the London Magazine, between the years 1821 and 1824. It was the author?s intention to continue the series of Lives to a later period, but a change in the proprietorship of the Magazine prevented the completion of his plan. They are now for the first time published in a separate form, and under their author?s name. In seeing the work through the press, the Editor has had occasion only to alter one or two particulars in the Life of Goldsmith, which the labours of that Poet?s more recent biographer, Mr. Prior, have subsequently elucidated.
