Ann Blainey’s work, first published in 1985, provides a sensitive study of Leigh Hunt and the literary climate that influenced his life, and fills a large gap in literary biography. Blainey brings a perceptive eye to a generally embittered man whose chaotic life seemed a tragic failure. This title will be of interest to students of literature.
