Horticulture, Acclimatization, Climatology
Observes that English blank odes, sapphics, and dactylics have been considered 'as a species of monsters, or exotics, that were not very likely to propagate, or thrive, in so unpropitious a climate', but that Robert Southey 'has made a vigorous effort for their naturalization, and generously endangered his own reputation in [sic] their behalf' (72).
