DIALOGUES

Concerning

ELOQUENCE

IN GENERAL; And particularly, that Kind which is fit for the PULPIT:

By the late

Archbishop of CAMBRAY.

False Eloquence, like the Prismatick Glass,
Its gaudy Colours Spreads on ev'ry Place :
The Face of NATURE, we no more survey;
Al glares alike, without Distinction, gay.
But true Expression like th' unchanging Sun,
Clear's and improve's whate'er it shines upon :
It gilds all objects, but it alters none.

Mr. Pope's Essay on Criticism.
