OF THE LATE
WILLIAM HAZLITT. .
NOTICE OF HIS LIFE,
BY HIS SON,
AND THOUGHTS ON HIS GENIUS AND WRITINGS,
E. L. BULWER, Esq., M.P.
IN TWO VOLUMES.
LONDON SAUNDERS AND OTLEY, CONDUIT STREET.
Written on seeing Bewick's Chalk Drawing of the Head of HazLITT.
BY SHERIDAN KNOWLES.
Thus Hazlitt looked! There's life in every line!
Soul-language—fire that colour could not give,
Humid, yet burning, there beams passion's flame,
Lighting the cheek, and quivering through the frame;
Yet hovers fondly, and its shadow sits
And fire-clothed eloquence, which comes in fits
By thee, in vain doth slander's venom'd dart
