Overview

"Leigh Hunt's contributions to English literature, although downplayed for several decades, are now acknowledged by scholars as key to our understanding of the Romantic period. Hunt was not only a facilitator, in his support for Keats's and Shelley's poetry, but was also a major contributor in his own right to the literary and political world of the nineteenth century. Leigh Hunt and the London Literary Scene underscores the literary innovations in Hunt's writing during the first three decades of the nineteenth century and explores his independent critical approach and use of poetic language." This book focuses specifically on selected works which serve to complement the current view of Hunt as a Romantic writer, and that are key instances in which Hunt strove to maintain his literary independence. Using an episodic, chronological approach Michael Eberle-Sinatra reassesses Hunt's substantial contributions to several different genres and offers an account of the significant impact of his works on audiences during the Romantic period.
