§ 34. Robert Pollok

Our record closes with Robert Pollok’s Course of Time, published in 1827, a long elaborate dissertation in blank verse, modelled upon Milton, on human destiny, which professor Wilson considered, though not a poem, “to overflow with poetry,” and which, at one time, enjoyed much popularity in more serious circles, but which has now ceased to be read.
