William Wordsworth addressed writing to, addressed in writing by, mutual influence James Hogg

"Wordsworth's 1835 'Extempore Effusion upon the Death of James Hogg', written in the year of [Hogg's] death, includes the lines:
'The mighty Minstrel breathes no longer,
'Mid mouldering ruins low he lies;
And death upon the braes of Yarrow,
Has closed the Shepherd-poet's eyes.'
This eulogy notwithstanding, Wordsworth's notes state 'He was undoubtedly a man of original genius, but of coarse manners and low and offensive opinions.' " (Wikipedia)
