The Correspondence of Leigh Hunt. Volume I
London: Smith, Elder and Co.
Leigh Hunt remained a significant figure in the Victorian era. Despite financial challenges, he continued to publish poetry and essays, and he was immortalised as Skimpole in Charles Dickens’s novel Bleak House (1853). Thornton Hunt (1810-1873), the eldest of Leigh and Marianne Hunt’s seven children, prepared this posthumous collection of his father’s letters. Best known today as editor of his father’s collected works, Thornton was also a noted journalist, eventually serving as editor of the Daily Telegraph.
