Hazlitt Summary


Hazlitt: A Life - From Winterslow to Frith Street by Stanley Jones

Glimpsed through the biographies of the major literary figures with whom he was associated, our image of Hazlitt has been limited, and often distorted. Stanley Jones portrays a man almost incapacitated by his own diffidence, a loyal friend and family man, yet an incorruptible critic, willing to defy social and literary conventions to espouse his opinions. Drawing on a range of sources, and revealing much new information, this is a portrait of one of the most representative figures of the Romantic period.
