About this book
A vivid biography of Romanticism's great spokesman, an entertaining life story full of sex, drink and political outrage. Draws on over a decade of research and reveals new details on key figures of the age such as Coleridge, Shelley, Keats and Lamb.
Duncan Wu's fascinating portrait of William Hazlitt - the first fully-researched biography, and the first to cover Hazlitt's entire life - reveals one of the greatest journalists in the language, and the principal spokesman of the Romantic age, interacting with every major writer and many other movers and shakers of the era.
