Excerpt from Hudibras, Vol. 1 of 2: A Poem

Rapin (in his Reflections) speaking of the necessary qualities of a poet, tells us, he must have a genius extraordinary; great natural gifts; a wit just, fruitful, piercing, solid, and universal; an understanding clear and distinct; an imagination neat and pleasant; an elevation of soul, that depends not on art or study, but is purely the gift of heaven, which must be sustained by a lively sense and vivacity; judgment to consider wisely of things, and vivacity for the beautiful expression of them, &c.

How justly this character is due to our Author - we leave it to the impartial and intelligent reader to decide.
