***"Harvey made three contributions as a verse translator to the publishing ventures of Jacob Tonson. His translation of Juvenal's notorious ninth satire appeared in The Satires of Decimus Junius Juvenalis, Translated... by Mr. Dryden and Several other Eminent Hands (1693 [i.e. 1692]). His translation of 'The Passion of Byblis' from the ninth book of Ovid's Metamorphoses, which borrows some phrases from John Oldham's translation of the same episode, and of 'Jupiter and Europa' from the fourth book, both appeared in The Annual Miscellany: for the Year 1694 (1694). All three poems treat of an unusual sexual situation without prurience, and Harvey shows himself to be a fluent versifier whose competence occasionally rises to excellence." - Oxford DNB..
