Horatio Smith

Smith, Horatio or Horace, 1779–1849, and James Smith,yes 1775–1839, English parodists, brothers. They wrote the famous Rejected Addresses (1812) which burlesqued such contemporary poets as Wordsworth, Scott, Coleridge, and Byron. James Smith, who produced the better pieces, never wrote anything of value afterward. Horatio Smith was the author of several novels, including Brambletye House (1826), an imitation of Scott. Horace in London (1813) was a collection of their early work.
