James Henry Leigh Hunt (1784-1859) was an English critic, essayist, poet and writer. He is best known for his promotion of younger writers such as Keats and Shelley. In 1808 he established a political periodical called the 'Examiner'. Celebrated for its reformist line, the Examiner also promoted the works of Keats, Shelley, Charles Lamb and William Hazlitt. It deliberately antagonised the government and in 1812, Hunt and his brother John were sentenced for an article criticising the Prince Regent. It continued in production from their prison cells, but lost momentum after their release. In 1822, Leigh Hunt travelled to Italy with Shelley and Byron and founded a radical journal called 'The Liberal'.
