1802 Poems
 
Poetical Register, 2 (1802): 430.

 

AMONG the female writers of the present day Mrs. Opie is entitled to hold a distinguished rank. Her poems cannot fail of giving pleasure to every reader of taste. They are not deformed by any of those meretricious ornaments which are so profusely employed by some persons; but are characterized throughout by elegance, tenderness, and simplicity.
