Critical and Biographical Notice
Joseph Story (17791845)
JUDGE STORY is the author of a volume of poems published in 1804, since which time we believe he has altogether abandoned the muses, and devoted himself to the severer labors of the profession in which he has become so eminent. His principal work is of the descriptive kind, and entitled The Power of Solitude. The volume does not appear to have been widely known, but we think its merits should preserve it from neglect.
