Folger, 51 (in non-religious section of poetry, between Finch's Prologue to Don Carlos and "The Spleen").

Secondary Eds:

1903 Reynolds prints Folger text, 238 (in her section of Ann's religious poetry); rpts of 1903 Reynolds: 1928 Murray, 91 (retitled "The Jealous Doves" and placed in a section of fables); 1930 Fausset 101 (following Reynolds, as a religious poem).


Proverbs 6:34.


Rpt of 1713/1903: 1973 Goulianos, 82 (anti-male poem).


This fable-like allegory is highly free and psychologically shrewd elaboration; it looks forward to some of Samuel Richardson's meditations (when "personating" Lovelace) in his 1748 novel, Clarissa.
