1854. Part One of Five. English essayist and poet, Charles Lamb (pen name Elia), studied at Christ's Hospital where he formed a lifelong friendship with Samuel Taylor Coleridge. When he was twenty years old Lamb suffered a period of insanity. His sister, Mary Ann Lamb, had similar problems and in 1796 murdered her mother in a fit of madness. Mary was confined to an asylum but was eventually released into the care of her brother. Lamb became friends in London with a group of young writers who favored political reform including Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Hazlitt and Leigh Hunt. This volume contains essays, written under his pseudonym Elia, which were originally published individually in London Magazine. The contents include the well-known A Dissertation upon Roast Pig, Dream-Children; a Reverie and more. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
