285. PAGE 153. French Authors. Dryden has the credit of an early ap.
preciation of French criticism. The “illiterate writers” followed and compiled their critical essays from Rapin, Le Bossu, Bouhours, Boileau, Perrault, Fontenelle, and the Daciers. Much of this borrowed critical wisdom was unacknowledged by Grub Streetand by the more respectable Spectator.

--Simple. or Implex. Aristotle's Poetics, x. Addison borrows the term 'implex' from the French critics, and especially from André Dacier's translation of Aristotle. Cf. F. Brunetière, Etudes critiques, IV. 181. Johnson uses the term, implex, in his Life of

The more popular 'guesses' are “the mother of Mr. Ascham, of Conington, in Cambridgeshire, and grandmother of Lady Hatton,” and “ Anne, Countess of Coventry.” The authorship of the sketch has been claimed for Hughes (Letters, iii. 8), and also for Dr. Brome, the clergyman of the parish in which the aforesaid Mrs. Ascham lived. The Bromius of this paper rather suggests the latter. If that be so, there may be
some basis of fact' in Mrs. Ockley's ascription to Mrs. Ascham. PAGE 198. Motto. Horace, Ars Poet. 363-4.
No. 303. Paid to that Idol. Addison subsequently interpolated here lines 446-457 of Book I. of Paradise Lost, with a note on the same by " the late ingenious Mr. Maundrell," taken from his Journey from Aleppo to Jerusalem.
