Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Matthew Prior, Vol. 2 of 2: Now First Collected, With Explanatory Notes, and Memoirs of the Author
The noble images and refleétions, the profound reafonings upon human aetions, and excellent precepts for the government of life, which are fou... nd in the Proverbs, Eccleftafles, and Other books, com'monly attributed to Solomon, afford fubjeeis for finer poems in every kind, than have, I think, yet appeared in the Greek, Latin, or any modern language: how far they were verfe in their original, is a differtation not to be enter ed into at prefent.
