Robert Southey

History, Politics, Religion


In Robert Southey, Andrews argues that Robert Southey's denunciation of global Catholicism is essential to understanding his life, works, and times. On this issue, Southey was absolutely consistent - from his first visit to Lisbon in 1795-6 to his Colloquies published in 1829. The Poet Laureate's partisan rhetoric reflect its intensity and reveal a great deal about the religious culture of this stormy period in England.
