William Walsh (1662 - 1708)
William Walsh (6 October 1662 – 15 March 1708) was an English poet and critic, son of Joseph Walsh of Abberley Hall, Worcestershire. He wrote a Dialogue concerning Women, being a Defence of the Sex (1691), addressed to "Eugenia"; and Letters and Poems, Amorous and Gallant (preface dated 1692, printed in Jonson's Miscellany, 1716, and separately, 1736); love lyrics designed, says the author, to impart to the world "the faithful image of an amorous heart." It is not as a poet, however, but as the friend and correspondent of Alexander Pope that Walsh is remembered.
