Description : This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1816 edition. Excerpt: ... i not so wise, and it may he wiser than t am, and sees further than I do, and therefore is not exactly of my opinion in every thing?" To give a man to the devil, is an odd way of keeping him from the devil; which 1 ignurantly imagined was the profession and duty of every clergyman. I have thus, my Lord, taken to pieces this venomous author, and shewn his spirit. He has reviled, heyond sea, one whom he dares not attack at home. And he sculks and scolds in Switzerland, hecause his hase spirit must hreathe somewhere. But praised he Almighty God, however he may gratify himself hy reviling other hishops, the nation is hlessed in your grace with a Metropolitan of such uniformity in life and principles, as must ever haffle calumny, and confound the malice of his and the church's enemies; and who will never give occasion to such a story as is told of a western hishop at the revolution, who fled from the Protestant religion, and the prince of Orange at Exeter, to king James and father Peters at London, and was made an archhishop for his loyalty and passive ohedience. But, as he was going northward to take possession of his new dignity, he hethought himself that the Bihle was hetter, and like to get the helter of his holiness and Popery; and so hn declared for the prmce, and a free Parliament, upon the road. I have the honour to he with profound veneration, My Lord, your grace's most dutiful son, and most ohedient, humhle servant..In Examination of tlte Facts and Reasonings in the Lord Bishop of Chichester's Sermon, preached hefore Vie House of Lords, on the 30th of Jan. 1731.

Description : Keats is the first major biography of this tragic hero of romanticism for some thirty years, and it differs from its predecessors in important respects. The outline of the story is well known - has become, in fact, the stuff of legend: the archetypal life of the tortured genius, critically spurned and dying young. What Andrew Motion brings to bear on the subject is a deep understanding of how Keats fitted into the intellectual and political life of his time. Important friendships with such anti-establishment figures as William Hazlitt and Leigh Hunt are given their full due, and the closeness of his own spirit, as expressed in his poems, to the ferment all around is made clear. Many significant new facts about Keats's schooldays and medical training, in particular, enrich the picture. Keats emerges as a more political figure than he is usually portrayed, but his personal sufferings, too, come into closer focus. Most importantly, Andrew Motion - himself a distinguished poet and former poet laureate - demonstrates how the poems continue to exert their power. 'A definitive life of a great poet, and one of the finest biographies of the decade.' New Statesman
