OF THE LATE
NOTICE OF HIS LIFE,
BY HIS SON,
AND THOUGHTS ON HIS GENIUS AND WRITINGS,
E. L. BULWER, Esq., M.P.
IN TWO VOLUMES.
Written on seeing Bewick's Chalk Drawing of the Head of Hazlitt.
BY SHERIDAN KNOWLES.
Thus Hazlitt looked! There's life in every line!
Soul-language-fire that colour could not give, See ! on that brow bow pale-robed thought divine,
In an embodied radiance seems to live! Ah! in the gaze of that entranced eye,
Humid, yet burning, there beams passion's flame,
Lighting the cheek, and quivering through the frame; Wbile round the lips, the odour of a sigh
Yet hovers fondly, and its shadow sits Beneath the channel of the glowing thought
And fire-clothed eloquence, which comes in fits
By thee, in vaio doth slander's venom'd dart
