Robert Southey (1774-1843), Romantic poet and Poet Laureate from 1813 to 1843, also wrote historical works such as this Life of Nelson. This is a revised and expanded version of an essay he published in the Quarterly Review in 1810. This is the second edition, the first having been published just the year before.
