William Sharp, editor of "Sonnets of This Century" [1887] writes of Blunt's work included in that volume: "These sonnets are excerpted from the third edition of that remarkable volume, The Love Sonnets of Proteus. They have more of the Shakespearian ring than perhaps any sonnets of our time. That 'Proteus' can at times touch a very high note indeed will be understood by any one who reads the sonorous and majestic sonnet on The Sublime. Structurally, they cannot be considered satisfactory." First Edition.
