1802 Poems
 
New Annual Register, 23 (1802): [317].

 

We turn con amore to the ladies; and are pleased to receive from Mrs. Opie a little volume of her poetic effusions. They consist for the most part of short pieces in a plaintive and melancholy strain, and are seldom devoid of merit. The Songs, as they are called, form the worst part of the book; they are mere sound and measure, without any appropriate or original idea. We had also received from this lady a well-written "Elegy to the Memory of the Duke of Bedford."
