Abstract

Samuel Rogers began publishing at 17 and achieved literary success at age 29 with The Pleasures of Memory and became a popular figure in London society. He inherited his father’s bank and continued to write poetry which was well regarded by his contemporaries. Rogers’ poem is based on a clear conception of memory which is spelled out in two prose sections which are reproduced here, together with a few stanzas of his poem and the poem of Robert Merry.
