List of years in poetry (table)
In literature

Now crowds to Founder Bocaj [Jacob Tonson] did resort

And for his Favour humbly made their Court.
The little Wits attended at his Gate
And Men of Title did his Levee wait;
For he, as Sovereign by Prerogative,
Old Members did exclude, and new receive.
He judg'd who most were for the Order fit,
And Chapters held to make new Knights of Wit.

-- From Richard Blackmore's The Kit-Kats. A Poem, Chapter 6, published this year and referring to the Kit-Kat Club in which the influential publisher Jacob Tonson was a prominent member. Tonson was influential in getting recognition for many poets in his series of anthologies.[1]
