‘The Wit in the Dungeon’: Leigh Hunt and the Insolent Politics of Cockney Coteries
“The outlandish coterie gatherings in Hunt’s cell during the two-year period of his incarceration for political libel (3 February 1813-3 February 1815) are usually dismissed as part of an amusing but rather trivial and dilettantish literary legend. I would like to reassess that fantastic scene in the dungeon, suggesting how its activities helped foster a group identity and a cultural project that strongly affected the course of Romanticism in the early nineteenth century while establishing an important model of progressive gender relations among the period’s second generation of writers.”
