CommentsAn interesting work of literary biography and criticism by Irish-born Southerner Richard Henry Wilde (1789-1847), lawyer, poet, and politician who lived most of his life in Georgia and New Orleans, except for a six-year sojourn in Italy, during which time he did his research for this work on Tasso and for a life of Dante, the latter which was not published.
