A. H. Bullen on Thomas Middleton

One of Middleton's early editors, A. H. Bullen, wrote:

I have read at various times much indifferent verse and much execrable verse, but I can conscientiously say that The Wisdom of Solomon Paraphrased is the most damnable piece of flatness that has ever fallen in my way.
