The Pleasures of Imagination (Akenside, 1744)

The Pleasures of Imagination  (1744) 
by Mark Akenside

Every fifth line in the poem is numbered, the numbering starting from one in each of the three Books. In the text, where a line to be numbered is too long to allow the number to be inserted, it has been omitted: these numbers have been reinstated in the transcription. Occasional errors in the placement of the numbers have also been corrected.

This work was published before January 1, 1926, and is in the public domain worldwide because the author died at least 100 years ago.
