The Liberal contains the poem: The Vision of Judgment" by Quevedo Redivivis: which is Byron's famous burlesque of Robert Southey's Vision of Judgement (1821) George III is arraigned before St. Peter, with Satan playing the part of the accuser. After John Wilkes and Junius are called as witnesses for the prosecution, Asmodeus appears bearing Robert Southey, whom Byron ridicules in a verse character as effective as any composed by Byron's master in satire, Alexander Pope.Byron sent the poem to John Murray in October 1821; after Murray hesitated to publish it was sent to Leigh Hunt's brother John, who printed the poem (without the prose preface) in the first number of the Liberal, which appeared 15 October 1822.
