“Where shall I place my imaginary coterie?”: Sociality and Public Discourse in Leigh Hunt’s London Journal

1 University of Ottawa.


Plymouth poet Nicholas Carrington's poem of bon voyage for Leigh Hunt, 'To a Friend, On His Approaching Voyage to Pisa' (1822), marks the beginning of Hunt's journey to join Lord Byron and P. B. Shelley in publishing  the Liberal  magazine. The poem offers a sidelight on some iconic events of Anglo-Italian Romanticism, and suggest that Carrington's other works deserve more attention than they have so far received.
