‘ROBIN HOOD. This day is published’. 2v 12mo. 12s. Boards.
Notes: Published by Oliver & Boyd and Whittaker. [also: Campbell: ‘This work is remarkably free from all offences against good taste and right feeling. The Author displays also a just and extensive knowledge of human nature, and has here brought out a very considerable variety of character. The general effect is very impressive. It is so like the tone of reality, that, while reading, we can scarcely shake off the conviction, that it is not a fictitous, but a real and living personage, who is addressing us. The sentiments are always liberal and candid, and the moral highly instructive and affecting’. Edinburgh Magazine, Jan 1819. [Quotation is a slightly modifed version of that found under Campbell]; ‘This is completely a tale of real life, written in a plain and unaffected style, and apparently devoted to the inculcation of this great moral sentiment, that indolence and dependence destory all the energies of the mind, and that that life will close in the most pleasing serenity, which has been most actively employed in promoting the welfare of society. It should be observed, that the verses, occasionally interwoven with the story, are pleasing and elegant, and such as could only have resulted from a feeling and amiable mind’. New Monthly Magazine, Mar 1819.]
