The Visionary, with Other Poems, is a publication of the

inde- fatigable Lady E. S. WORTLEY. The plan of the leading poem we do not exactly comprehend ; but it appears to be a cento of thoughts and reflections upon various subjects, which the harsh will call visionary, the politer abstract : the versification chosen is the Spenserian stanza ; and the whole is dedicated to the Duke of WELLINGTON, both in prose and verse,—to whose honour, more- over, no fewer than sixteen sonnets are written, though appear- ing somewhat late in the day, as they bear date in November 1834, and deal in exhortations and prophecies that were alike vain.
