Description : Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
Description : A friend and keen supporter of Shelley and Keats, Leigh Hunt produced a large body of poetry in a variety of forms, including narrative poems, satires, poetic dramas, odes, epistles, sonnets, short lyrics and translations from Greek, Roman, Italian and French poems. A central figure of the Romantic movement, Hunt produced poetry that reflected his learned knowledge of French and Italian versification, while imbued with a spirit of cheerfulness and originality.
