Summary
"William Hazlitt is England's greatest essayist. He was also a painter, a controversialist, a radical and a philosopher whose critical writings about literature, the theatre and art were ardently admired in his day. He is the author of the first confessional autobiography of sexual passion, a biographer of Napoleon, a friend of, and profound influence upon, Keats, Stendhal, and Charles Lamb, a friend and later enemy of Coleridge, Wordsworth, and De Quincey, and a key figure in the intellectual life of Regency England. His life was lived against the backdrop of the French Revolution and subsequent Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, with their associated political and literary radicalism in England." "In this biography A. C. Grayling, himself a philosopher, critic and essayist, tells the story of Hazlitt's life and work in the setting of its disturbed times, making a remarkable writer once again accessible by showing how his work and life interpret each other. His disastrous love-life and his passionate philosophical convictions are closely allied, making him a complex writer of great power."--BOOK JACKET
