Rogers, Samuel (17631855)

Rogers, Samuel, English poet, born in London, son of a banker, bred to banking, and all his life a banker—took to literature, produced a succession of poems: “The Pleasures of Memory” in 1792, “Human Life” in 1819, and “Italy,” the chief, in 1822; he was a good conversationalist, and told lots of good stories, of which his “Table-Talk,” published in 1856, is full; he issued at great expense a fine edition of “Italy” and early poems, which were illustrated by Turner and Stothard, and are much prized for the illustrations (17631855).
