CHAPTER IX
EIGHTEENTH CENTURY - THE AGE OF ANNE

Coffee drinking. Coffee drinking had a great deal to do with the development of literature in the eighteenth century. Some twenty years after Jonson's death, coffee became the fashionable drink, and coffee-houses were opened by the hundred. These houses served the purpose of informal inexpensive clubs ; and gradually one became noted as the head-quarters for political discussion, another for social gossip, another for shipping news, etc. " Will's " became the special meeting-place for literary men. Dryden was their chief, and around him circled several of those writers who were to do the best literary work of the early part of the eighteenth century.
Not long before Dryden's death, a boy of twelve slipped into the edge of the circle and stood gazing at the great man with dark, earnest eyes ; for Dryden was the poet whom he most reverenced and admired. The boy was very small, he was badly deformed, and so helpless that he could not stand without supports ; but his mind was wonderfully active, and he hoped to be able some day to write poems that would make him famous. He had already made some attempts that were amazingly good for a child.
