CAREY, David. Secrets of the Castle (1806)
Flowers of Literature (1806): 512.
Mr. Carey, although he does not make so distinguished a figure
in his novel, as he has done in his poems, has nevertheless proved
himself capable of writing a very interesting romance, of unexceptionable
moral tendency; yet bordering upon the extravagant! but this is
perhaps in consequence of his wish to please the still prevalent
taste for horrors, and supernatural agency.
