    Like most of Charles Lamb book poems it is particularly sentimental but it is still remembered and widely read, often included in Poetic Collections. His first Charles Lamb book to the magazine was a description of the Old South-Sea House, where Lamb had passed a few month's noviciate as a clerk, thirty years before, and of its inmates who had long passed away; and remembering the name of a gay, light-hearted foreigner, who fluttered there at that time, he subscribed his name to the essay.

She refused him, confiding to a friend that she could not carry Mary's problems too. Charles would continue to work there for 25 years, until his retirement with pension. What need was there of unearthing the bones of that fantastic old great marl, to expose them in a winding-sheet of the newest fashion to modern censure? This also contained critical "characters" of the old writers, [16] which added to the flow of significant literary criticism, primarily of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, from Lamb's pen.
