I. ADDISON, JOSEPH (1672–1719). By W. J. Courthope. 1884.

... The charge of Addison’s “insidious enmity to Pope” is fully discussed. For this (if it ever existed, except in Pope's imagination) Pope took his revenge in the description he wrote of the “character of Mr. Addison,” in the lines “Peace to all such, etc. “. . . Who would not weep if Atticus [Addison] were he?” first printed in Pope's Miscellanies, and afterwards inserted in the Epistle to Dr. Arbuthnot, which now forms the Prologue to the Satires. The first published Edition (see p. 143), with Addison's name and the revise in the Prologue (see British Poets, Pope, Vol. III. p. 9), are worth comparing to see how deep-seated and permanent was the anger of the Twickenham poet.

The “classic English” of Addison receives one curious illustration in his Cato, where

he writes:—
“So the pure limpid stream, when foul with stains,

“Of rushing torrents and descending rains,” etc.

... The Life of the “Father of Experimental Philosophy” is, as Dean Church remarks, “one that it is a pain to write or to read.” He entered into conflict with Sir Edward Coke in legal Courts, in politics, and also in matrimony. Coke was removed from his Judgeship, driven thence by Bacon “for his bad law,” but he married the rich widow, Lady Hatton, to whom Bacon was paying Court, and in 163? Coke reaped a full revenge on Bacon, who in four months after celebrating his 60th birthday in great state was dismissed from the Chancellorship—fined 440,000—sentenced to be imprisoned during the King's pleasure—and forbidden to reside in London. Although, as a matter of fact, he went to the Tower only for two days—his fine was practically remitted—
