George Crabbe was an English poet and naturalist. He was born in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, and developed his love of poetry as a child. By the time he went to London, he had little success, but eventually got the chance to have his poem, The Library, published in 1781.
This reasoning Maid, above her sex's dread, Had dared to read, and dared to say she read; Not the last novel, not the new-born play; Not the mere trash and scandal of the day; But (though her young companions felt the shock) She studied Berkeley, Bacon, Hobbes and Locke.
