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).
