Leigh Hunt

Kindle, ePub

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. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Hunt’s complete poetical works, with beautiful illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
