[498] C. C. Clarke, _Recollections of Writers_, p. 244. The year in which the letter was written is not given, but it must fall within the years 1833-1840, the period of Hunt's residence at Chelsea.

[499] _The Victorian Age_, I, pp. 94-101.

[500] Hunt, _Autobiography_, II, p. 267.

[501] _Critical, Historical and Miscellaneous Essays_, New York and Boston, 1860, IV, p. 350.

[502] The first preface to _Endymion_ was rejected by Keats on the advice of his friends who thought that it was in the vain yet deprecating tone of Hunt's prefaces. To this charge Keats replied: "I am not aware that there is anything like Hunt in it (and if there is, it is my natural way, and I have something in common with Hunt)." The second preface justifies the charge.

[503] _London Journal_, January 21, 1835.

[504] Of Southey's attack on Hunt and others in May, 1818, Keats wrote: "I have more than a laurel from the Quarterly Reviewers, for they have smothered me in 'Foliage.'" (_Works_, IV, p. 115.)

[505] Sh.e.l.ley wrote also a letter to the _Quarterly Review_ remonstrating against its treatment of Keats but the letter was never sent. (Milnes, _Life, Letters and Literary Remains of John Keats_, I, p. 208 ff.)

[506] In _Lord Byron and Some of His Contemporaries_, Hunt states that he informed Byron of his mistake and received a promise that it would be altered, but that the rhyme about _article_ and _particle_ was too good to throw away (p. 266).

[507] Just before leaving England, Keats with Hunt visited the house where Tom had died. He told Hunt in _this_ connection that he was "dying of a broken heart." (_Literary Examiner_, 1823, p. 117.)

[508] _Works_, IV, pp. 42-43, 169-171, 174, 177, 194; V, pp. 27, 29.

[509] _Atlantic Monthly_, XI, p. 406.

[510] October 11, 1818. It included two reprints from other papers. The first was a letter taken from the _Morning Chronicle_ signed J. S. It predicted that if Keats would "apostatise his friends.h.i.+p, his principles, and his politics (if he have any) he may even command the approbation of the _Quarterly Review_." This was followed by extracts from an article by John Hamilton Reynolds in the _Alfred Exeter Paper_ praising Keats for his power of vitalizing heathen mythology and for his resemblance to Chapman and calling Gifford "a Lottery Commissioner and Government Pensioner" who persecuted Keats by "intrigue of literature and contrivance of political parties."

[511] Dante Gabriel Rossetti suggests this possibility in a letter to Mr.

Hall Caine. (Caine, _Recollections of Dante Gabriel Rossetti_, p. 179.)

[512] _Cobwebs of Criticism_, p. 137.

[513] _Autobiography_, II, p. 43.

[514] See p. 50 ff.

[515] _Imagination and Fancy_, p. 230.

[516] Dowden, _Life of Sh.e.l.ley_, II, p. 274.

[517] Other hostile reviews of _The Cenci_ appeared in the _Literary Gazette_ of April 1, 1820; the _Monthly Magazine_ of the same month; and the _London Magazine_ of May of the same year.

[518] _Blackwood's_, January, 1822.

[519] Alexander Ireland has pointed out curious correspondences in the lives and intrests of Hazlitt and Hunt. (_Memoir of Hazlitt_, pp.


[520] _Quarterly_, May, 1818.

[521] _Ibid._, December, 1818.

[522] _Ibid._, July, 1819.

[523] _Ibid._, October, 1821.

[524] Birrell, _William Hazlitt_, New York, 1902, p. 147.

[525] _The Examiner_ of March 7 and 14, 1819, contained extracts from the _Letter_ and comments by Hunt upon this "quint-essential salt of an epistle," as he called it. Lamb's _Letter to Southey_, already referred to, contained a defense of Hazlitt as well as of Hunt.

[526] February, 1818-April, 1819.

[527] August, 1822.

[528] August, 1823; October, 1823.
