Excerpt from A Complete Dictionary of Poetical Quotations: Comprising the Most Excellent and Appropriate Passages in the Old British Poets; With Choice and Copoius Selections From the Best Modern British and American Poets

About twenty years ago the plan was originated by John F. Addington, an English man, then residing in this city; but he devoted his attention almost exclusively to the old British Bards. His labours were valuable, still the work was incomplete; the modern writers of poetry, both English and American, with a few exceptions in favour of the former, were wholly omitted. Then his selections were not always in accordance with the present standard of public taste. The old dramatic poets wrote according to their light, which was often re¿ected through a foul medium, and revealed much that is now considered, and justly, too, as coarse and indelicate. The text of Mr. Addington's selections required revision; still, he deserves much credit for his perseverance and research, and the study he devoted to rescue from the reckless tooth of time some of the finest thoughts and most vivid images of the ancient fathers of English poetry. His selections from Shakspeare were c0pious 3 and also from Byron, the only modern poet that he much favoured.
