The wit in the dungeon : the remarkable life of Leigh Hunt--poet, revolutionary, and the last of the romantics by Anthony Holden( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Holden's narrative brings to life a pivotal moment in literary and political history--the world of England in the first half of the 19th century and the transition from the Romantics to the Victorians. A tirelessly prolific poet, essayist, editor, and critic, Hunt was the beating heart of a Romantic literary circle, an intimate of Keats and Shelley, Byron, Hazlitt, and Lamb. While campaigning fearlessly for political reform, he invented theater criticism as we know it and launched the careers of numerous poets whose names now overshadow his own. But he survived most of his youthful companions to become an elder statesman of Victorian literature, the friend and champion of Thackeray, Tennyson, Browning, and Dickens.--From publisher description

The man who wrote Mozart : the extraordinary life of Lorenzo Da Ponte by Anthony Holden( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In June 1805, a 56-year-old Italian immigrant disembarked in Philadelphia carrying only a violin. Before dying in New York 23 years later, in his ninetieth year, he would find New World respectability as a bookseller, then as the first Professor of Italian at Columbia University. For now, he set up shop as a grocer. There was always an air of mystery about the Abbé Lorenzo da Ponte. A scholarly poet, teacher and priest, with a devoted wife, he also had a reputation as a womanizer. Da Ponte charmed all he met, pioneering the place of Italian music in American life. The many lives of Lorenzo da Ponte - librettist of Mozart's three great operas, The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni and Cosi Fan Tutte - begin in Venice, linger in Vienna and London and finish in New York, where today he lies buried in an unmarked grave in the world's largest cemetery. --book jacket
