Notice of The Fall of Robespierre, in The British Critic (May 1795)

The British Critic 5 (May 1795): 539-40.


The fall of Robespierre. An Historic Drama. By B. S. T. Coleridge, of Jesus College, Cambridge. 8vo. 37 pp. 1s. Lunn, Cambridge. 1794.


    Mr. Coleridge has aimed at giving a dramatic air to a detail of Conventional speeches, which they were scarcely capable of receiving. The sentiments, however, in many instances are naturally, though boldly conceived, and expressed in language, which gives us reason to think the Author might, after some probation, become no unsuccessful wooer of the tragic muse.
