Patmore, Coventry Kersey Dighton
Essay on English Metrical Law.Although Patmore's early poetry seems insipid and sentimental, his later work is bolder, more ornate, and more profound.
See his collected poems (ed. by F. Page, 1949) and Memoirs and Correspondence (ed. by B. Champneys, 1900–1901); studies by E. J. Oliver (1956), J. C. Reid (1957), and O. Burdett (1921, repr. 1973).
