1085. Robert Southey: Entire Man of Letters
25.00
W. A. Speck
In his lifetime Robert Southey was very much the equal of his fellow 'Lake Poets', Coleridge and Wordsworth. But since his death his reputation has been overshadowed by their success. W. A. Speck argues that if Southey's poetry is no longer considered as significant, his other writings were more sailent and his political views far more influential than those of his fellow poets. He was, as Byron conceded, England's 'only exsisting entire man of letters'. . . . more
