This illuminating biography of Robert Stephen Hawker (1803-75) unravels fully the famous Cornish parson-poet’s rich personality. Drawing on a mass of unpublished material, Brendon re-creates one of the most bizarre of Victorian lives, revealing the mixture of truth, over-simplification and falsehood in the legend which has grown around him.
