Leigh Hunt was involved in a number of journals besides the Examiner. These included the Indicator (1819-1821), which first published one of the most famous poems of British Romanticism, John Keats’s ‘La Belle Dame Sans Merci’. Hunt perhaps proposed the pseudonym ‘Caviare’, a reference to Hamlet, Act II, scene II: ‘’twas / caviare to the general’. The pseudonym links Keats with Shakespeare and challenges reviewers who had dismissed Keats’s previous work.
