    First beckford and newnham both are illusioned name acording to old English, secondly the poem indicates a great mixture of pun and anticlimax. its very humor when so called doctor requestions the patient for possible remedy instead of himself giving solutions. (Report) Reply

    I find this poem to be quite fascinating. This diverts away from Austen's typical writing typle, which she's most famous for. Unlike Sense and Sensablility or Emma, this literary work is simpler. The comic nature of this poem is entertaining as well. I'm fond of Austen's novels and now I'm a fan of her poetry. (Report) Reply
