Oct. 19: Leigh Hunt, English author


Leigh Hunt (1784-1859) English critic, essayist, and poet whose popular poems include "Jenny kiss'd Me," "Abou Ben Adhem and the Angel," and "A Night-Rain in Summer."

He brought such greats as John Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Robert Browning, and Alfred Tennyson to the attention of the public. For this alone, he deserves our thanks, but many of his poems, though lacking sophistication, are delightful.
