|Stephen Duck||dismissed by, knew, read by||Jonathan Swift||
Duck "had a personality which attracted those who met him; his simple uprightness and naïve charm won a measure of personal liking from even such harsh judges as Pope and Swift, neither of whom had a kind word for him as a poet" (ODNB). Swift also subscribed to Duck's first authorized publication, Poems On Several Occasions (1736).
|Mary Leapor||influenced by, read||Jonathan Swift||
"Jonathan Swift, particularly his anti-blason poetry (the de-emphasis on the female physical body in relation to nature), was also a model" for Leapor's writing (Wikipedia).
