Poems by John Nicholson, the Airedale Poet

Excerpt from Poems by John Nicholson, the Airedale Poet: With a Sketch of His Life and Writings IN every walk of life misfortunes are strewed thickly around, but in the lives of men of genius, in each department of literature and science, they have greatly abounded. The poetic race, in particular, appear to be doomed to a state of misery; for their calamities have in all ages been proverbial. If the mantle of Elijah fall upon one of the inspired, it seems also inse parable from the lot of dwelling by the brook Cherith. The lives of the poets may in general be summed up as comprising every species of human woe; and the blanket of Boyse, the loaf of Otway, the glass house lodgings of Savage, and the poison cup of Chatterton, are merely some of the more prominent incidents in the sad history of the poets of our own country. Nor have the bards of other lands been more fortunate. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
