This revised version of an essay of 1963 (University of Toronto Quarterly 32:2, 155-69) offers a detailed appraisal of Dryden's judgement of the satire of Horace and Juvenal, as found in his Discourse concerning the Original and Progress of Satire. It corrects many of Dryden's assertions and conclusions. However, while Dryden was incorrect in his assessment of the Classical poets, he reflects a view of them current in the C18th and up to the C20th. To correct Dryden is not to criticise him.

Keywords:   Dryden Discourse, Satire, Horace, Juvenal
