Excerpt from Prize Poems: And Other Specimens of Dramatic Poetry Two or three are inserted which his own taste and judgment would have induced him to reject. The piece numbered 13 is inserted at the special request of the writer. It afterwards occurred to the publisher, that it might gratify many readers to find in the same volume, several other productions of a similar nature, which have been elicited by similar occasions. To the original pieces are therefore added the Prize Prologue of the late Robert Treat Paine, two Prize Prologues by Charles Sprague, and one by Thomas Wells, - all of Boston. That the reader may have an opportunity, if he wishes, to compare not only the respective merits of these productions with each other, but also to view them side by side with the productions of English poets in the same species of composition, the volume is enriched with Pope's Prologue to Cato, Johnson's celebrated Prologue at the opening of Drury-Lane theatre, Garrick's Ode for the Shakspeare Jubilee, Rogers's Address for Mrs. Siddons, Sheridan's Monody on Garrick, Byron's Prize Prologue, and Kemble's Address on leaving the stage.
