Hunt, Leigh (17841859)

Hunt, Leigh, essayist and poet; was of the Cockney school, a friend of Keats and Shelley; edited the Examiner, a Radical organ; was a busy man but a thriftless, and always in financial embarrassment, though latterly he had a fair pension; lived near Carlyle, who at one time saw a good deal of him, his household, and its disorderliness, an eyesore to Carlyle, a “poetical tinkerdom” he called it, in which, however, he received his visitors “in the spirit of a king, apologising for nothing”; Carlyle soon tired of him, though he was always ready to help him when in need (17841859).
