608 pages, decorated cloth, very good. From The Oxford Companion to English Literature, 'Thomas Hood (1799 - 1845) Born in London, the son of a bookseller, was assistant editor of the London Magazine, 1821-3, and the friend of Lamb, Hazlitt, de Quincey, and other literary men. He edited various periodicals: The Gem (1829) , the Comic Annual (1830) , The New Monthly Magazine (1841-3) , and Hood's Magazine (1843). He and J. H. Reynolds published Odes and Addresses to Great People (1825) , a series of satires and parodies which sold well. He wrote much humorous and satirical verse, often making use of his remarkable skill with puns, but his satire lacked bite. Lamb, recognizing this lack, and referring to Hood's attempts to do in verse for London what W. Hogarth had done with engraving, called him 'our half-Hogarth'. His serious poems include 'The Song of the Shirt', which was immensely successful; 'The Bridge of Sighs', and 'The Dream of Eugene Aram', the first about a suicide by drowning, the second about a murder; 'The Last Man'; 'The Plea of the Mid-summer Fairies' (which includes 'I remember, I remember') ; and shorter pieces, such as 'The Death-bed'. He wrote a comedy, York and Lancaster, and in Hood's Own (1839) published a lively account of an assembly at the Lamb's house. He received a civil list pension not long before his death.'.
