VIGNETTE: Scene in Windsor Forest.

“ It is surely superfluous to answer the question that has once been asked, whether Pope was a poet? otherwise than by asking in return, if Pope be not a poet, where is poetry to be found? Let us look round on the present time, and back on the past; let us inquire to whom the voice of mankind has decreed the wreath of poetry; let their productions be examined, and their claims stated; and the pretensions of Pope will be no more disputed.-A thousand years may elapse before there shall appear another man with a power of versification equal to that of Pope."

JOHNSON.
