1883. English poet and man of letters. Old World Idylls is the volume which contains some of Dobson's most characteristic work. The spirit of the 18th century is revived in his The Ballad of Beau Brocade and in The Story of Rosina, as nowhere else in modern English poetry. In Beau Brocade, indeed, the pictorial quality of his work, the dainty economy of eloquent touches, is at its very best: every couplet has its picture, and every picture is true and vivacious.
