Author Code: EJLH

Born: Oct. 19, 1784 - Southgate, London, England

Died: Aug. 28, 1859 - Putney, London, England

The son of American loyalists forced to flee to England during the American Revolution, Hunt was educated at Christ's Hospital, but was unable to attend university due to a speech impediment which was later cured.Instead, he spent his time writing verse, the first of which, Juvenilia was published in 1801. He worked for a number of years as a clerk in the War Office before leaving in 1808 to become editor of The Examiner, his brother's newspaper. Later, in 1813, Hunt and his brothers were imprisoned for attacking the Prince Regent in their paper. Hunt served two years at Surrey County Jail and was constantly besieged by visitors from the literary world, including Charles Lamb and Lord Byron. From 1814 to 1817. Hunt collaborated with William Hazlitt in producing numerous essays which were collected in The Round Table (1817). In 1816, he published Story of Rimini, which attracted a great deal of criticism. From 1819 to 1821, Hunt edited The Indicator, producing much of the content himself which included stories, poems, essays and criticism. Some of his best work appeared here. Hunt became friends with Shelley and later introduced his friend Keats to him. Shelley helped Hunt financially during some troubled times. In 1821, Hunt left England to join Shelley in Italy, arriving after terrible storms and illness in 1822. Some weeks later Shelley died and left Hunt isolated and destitute. Nevertheless, he remained in Italy until 1825. On his return to England he had a number of failed ventures including The Tatler (1830-32) and London Journal (1834-35). In 1835, he published Captain Sword and Captain Pen, one of his best poetical works. Until 1840, Hunt was virtually in constant poverty, but with the help of Mary Shelley. and later Lord Russell, he was awarded a pension and an annuity which allowed him to live in relative comfort. He published his autobiography in 1850. His other works include Foliage (1818), Hero and Leander (1819), Christianism (1832), Legends of Florence (1840), Stories From the Italian Poets (1846), Imagination and Fancy (1844), Wit and Humour (1846), The Town (1848), The Old Court Suburb (1855) and Stories in Verse (1855).
