There are also poems by Charles Lamb, Charles Lloyd, Joseph Cottle, Robert Lovell, George Dyer, Francis Wrangham, Humphry Davy, Mary Robinson, and Amelia Opie. A third volume was planned but never appeared. The canceled leaf, excised in all but Southey's own copy, contained his "War Poem" and was deleted because of its insufficient patriotism.
