[WARTON, Thomas, the younger.]
The Pleasures of Melancholy. A Poem …
First edition of Warton’s second publication, preceded by Five Pastoral Eclogues (1745), and written at that time, though Warton also contributed to his brother Joseph’s Odes on various Subjects (1746). The Pleasures of Melancholy was Warton’s first major poem, a meditative blank-verse work more referred-to than read, with a debt to Milton and several nods to Pope, and helped to establish his reputation.
