Comments¶ An important work of early 18th century literary criticism and the last book by Charles Gildon (1665-1724), capping a prolific and interesting career as a versatile, talented miscellaneous writer. "Gildon maintained a standard well above the common hacks for some thirty years of copious and varied output. He was received into the company of John Dryden, William Wycherley, and Aphra Behn; John Dennis became his mentor in literary criticism" - DNB.
