Comments

A satirical poem by the dedicated satirist James Miller, directed at Robert Walpole. It “caused a sensation. Six replies quickly appeared, including one by Miller, The Great Man's Answer, where, in confident colloquial verse, Walpole condemns himself by his own best arguments” - ODNB. Miller (1706-1744) was a playwright, translator, poet and essayist. He received the approval of Pope for his political satires like this one.
