Description

Analysing Hazlitt's radicalism and its foundations in Unitarian culture, Paulin argues that he 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. He offers a fully rounded literary portrait with great depth and detail.
