THOMAS CAMPBELL

By HOOVER H. JORDAN Eastern Michigan College


I. Bibliographies

THOMAS CAMPBELL wrote a great deal anonymously in both prose and poetry. As a consequence, no one has attempted the laborious task of compiling a list of all his writings which would presume to be definitive, nor is there any apparent reason in our time why the task should be attempted. The compilation by R. W. King for The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature is excellent and suffices for all ordinary purposes.

In the future, of course, additional minor items may be attributed to Campbell. In recent years two articles have attempted such additions. In "Unacknowledged Poems by Thomas Campbell" ( MLN, 1922) A. M. Turner suggests that Campbell wrote eight poems which appeared anonymously in the New Monthly Magazine. No one of these has great merit, and actually the proof of Campbell's authorship is not conclusive. In "'Hymen's Ball': An Unpublished Poem by Thomas Campbell" (N&Q, 29 June 1940) Charles Duffy very reasonably suggests the addition of this light, gay piece to the Campbell bibliography.

The CBEL also contains a very adequate list of works about Campbell. Further items, however, can be found in the bibliographies appended to the unpublished dissertations of Albert M.[Bierstadt] Turner
