Comments

Copleston’s first five works and a complete set of his famous pamphlets parodying criticism of the day and in particular the methods of the Edinburgh Review. The editors of the Review replied to Copleston’s first pamphlet, Advice to a Young Reviewer, with their own attack on Oxford, and a war of words ensued with four more replies from Copleston (all present here), defending the Oxford system. Copleston (1776-1849) was the Bishop of Llandaff and a prominent Oxonian. Advice to a Young Reviewer is considered a classic of literary parody and has been reprinted well into the 20th century.
