LITERATURE. MR. FRANK FOWLER'S LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 13 May 1857

LITERATURE. MR. FRANK FOWLER'S .LECTURE. Mr. Fowler entered, last week, upon the very hazardous task of presenting, to the public, imita- tions of some of our best and most brilliant poets. The specimens which we have extracted will serve to shew with what success he has borrowed the elegant and characteristic drapery of his models, and how skilfully has he thrown it over the warm creations of his own poetic mind. Our limited space denies us the pleasure of giving his lecture in an entire form, but we present our readers with the ' literary portraiture' of the lecturer, and such of his re   marks as arc calculated to carry the resemblance more strikingly to the readers' mind.
