Excerpt from The Complete Poetical Works of William Cowper, Esq.: Including the Hymns and Translations From Madame Guion, Milton, Etc., And Adam; A Sacred Drama; From the Italian of Gio. Battista Andreini
This preface is not designed to commend the Poems to which it is prefixed. My testimony would be insufficient for those who are not qualified to judge properly for themselves, and unnecessary to those who are. Besides, the reasons which render it improper and unseemly for a man to celebrate his own performances, or those of his nearest relatives, will have some inﬂuence in suppressing much of what he might otherwise wish to say in favour of a friend, when that friend is indeed an mm idem, and excites almost the same emotions of sensibility and affection as he feels for himself.
