In consequence of this thought, I suggested to you the expediency of prefixing to your book a few preliminary reflections upon the condition of American poetry- by which it might appear that you were conscious of your departure from the usual track of your poetical brethren- and that although you transgressed the American laws of verse, your conduct did not proceed from a contempt for all positive regulations, but for such only as contravene the everlasting laws of reason.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
