Matthew Prior, An English Ballad: In answer to Mr. Despreaux's Pindaresque ode on the taking of Namure, "Despreaux" refers to Nicholas Boileau-Despreaux; in this edition the text of Despreaux's Ode sur la prise de Namur was given in French on pages opposite Prior's verse; published anonymously by Jacob Tonson. Prior's friend, Sir William Trumbull, wrote to him, "I see no reason why the author should be ashamed of battering Boileau's poem and reducing it, any more than we the castle, since it is our honour that everything that concerns Namur be on our side." Samuel Johnson would later write about this work: "The burlesque of Boileau's Ode on Namur has, in some parts, such airiness and levity as will always procure it readers, even among those who cannot compare it with the original."
