Pleasures of Melancholy

The English Poet, Thomas Wain Warton was born on 9th January 1728. He wrote Pleasures of Melancholy at the age of seventeen. As Oxford was his home, he wrote a poem in praise of Oxford, The Triump of Isis. Though, I do not have a profile of this Poet, you may dig for links on above search. You may find other Literature Profiles here on kidsfreesouls.

Well, here is excerpts of the Pleasures of Melancholy on the web for your reference.
