Robert Southey [1774-1843] is one of the three great "Lake Poets" but doesn't get as much attention for his poetry as Wordsworth and Coleridge; he's remembered more for his Life of Nelson. This biography reminds us that he was not only a great poet, but also an important Tory journalist, a founder of the Quarterly Review, and a well-known traveler. Illustrated, with footnotes and index. Jacket protected in mylar. In excellent condition for its age. Collins, London. Hb, Dj. USED. $20.00
