Essay

 

Bold Type's Poetry Editor Ernest Hilbert writes: "Whatever else may be said of Collins's poems, they are never theatrical, ominous, or corny. He is an intelligent man and a good poet, one understood in his own age. This can be viewed as a dilemma (strictly in terms of posterity, vita brevis, ars longa) or a virtue (in terms of contemporary influence, hodie mihi, cras tibi)."
