Evidence

"I asked whether Prior"s Poems were to be printed entire: Johnson said they were. I mentioned Lord Hailes"s censure of Prior, in his Preface to a collection of ""Sacred Poems"", by various hands, published by him at Edinburgh a great many years ago, where he mentions, ""those impure tales which will be the eternal opprobrium of their ingenious authour"". JOHNSON. ""Sir, Lord Hailes has forgot. There is nothing in Prior that will excite to lewdness. If Lord Hailes thinks there is, he must be more combustible than other people"". I instanced the tale of Paulo Purganti and his Wife. JOHNSON. ""Sir, there is nothing there, but that his wife wanted to be kissed when poor Paulo was out of pocket. No, Sir, Prior is a lady"s book. No lady is ashamed to have it standing in her library""."
