About this title

Synopsis:

Analyzing the writer William Hazlett's radicalism and its foundation in Unitarian culture, this book argues that Hazlitt was in effect a republican epic poet in prose (as distinct from prose poet), and a crucially important critic who has been given nothing like his due.

About the Author:

Tom Paulin was born in Leeds in 1949 but grew up in Belfast, and was educated at the universities of Hull and Oxford. He has published eight collections of poetry as well as a Selected Poems 1972-1990, two major anthologies, two versions of Greek drama, and several critical works, including The Day-Star of Liberty: William Hazlitt's Radical Style and, most recently, Crusoe's Secret: The Aesthetics of Dissent. His most recent collection of poems is The Road to Inver (2004). Well known for his appearances on the BBC's Newsnight Review, he is also the G. M. Young Lecturer in English Literature at Hertford College, Oxford.
