ROSE, Edward H. Sea-Devil, The (1811)
Monthly Review, 2nd ser. 67 (Mar 1812): 320.
Only the first of these volumes is written by Mr. Rose, who died
before the work was finished; and the remainder has Mr. Wild for
its author. The conclusion is more moral than the beginning; in
which, however, some humour will be found, though not of the most
refined sort, and too evidently imitated from Fielding and Sterne.
The last scene being laid in France, where M. Le Noir, Mirabeau,
&c. are introduced, it is rather an anachronism to call this
a romance of the present day.
