Glimpsed through the biographies of the major literary figures with whom he was associated, our image of Hazlitt has been limited, and often distorted. Stanley Jones portrays a man almost incapacitated by his own diffidence, a loyal friend and family man, yet an incorruptible critic, willing to defy social and literary conventions to espouse his opinions. Drawing on a range of sources, and revealing much new information, this is a portrait of one of the most representative figures of the Romantic period.
