English Songs, and Other small Poems


Regular price $150.00 Sale

Most of Barry Cornwall's verse was composed between 1815, when he began to contribute to the Literary Gazette, and 1823, or at the latest, 1832, when this collection was published. Rather unknown outside Britain in his times and largely considered to be an imitator of greater romantic poets, he was nevertheless regarded quite highly during his own lifetime. Thackeray dedicated Vanity Fair to Cornwall and Wilkie Collins dedicated The Woman In White to him.
