Passions in PoetryJames Henry Leigh Hunt
1784 - 1859

English essayist, journalist and poet. His poem The Story of Rimini (1816) was influential on the second generation of Romantic poets, particularly Keats. Other well-known poems include Captain Sword and Captain Pen (1835) and the much-anthologised Abou Ben Adhem (1825) and Jenny Kissed Me (1825). An edition of Hunt's Poetical Works was published in 1838. Most of his prose appeared in the form of essays in his own journals. Imagination and Fancy (1844) is his most important longer work in prose, in which he compares the arts of painting and poetry.
