Thomas Hood: Selected Poems

Thomas Hood: Selected Poems




Illustrator, journalist, humorist, and poet, Thomas Hood was part of the London literary scene during the time when the era of Romantic literature changed to Victorian. Charles Lamb, Charles Dickens, and William Wordsworth were associates. Hood wrote for popular magazines during the early years of the nineteenth century. His linguistic mastery helped him move effortlessly between comic epigram and mythical narrative, love lyric and street ballad, grotesque satire and social protest, without losing his distinctive poetic voice.
