Search - List of Books by John Hamilton Reynolds

John Hamilton Reynolds (1796—1852) was an English solicitor and poet. John Hamilton was the son of George Hamilton, writing master at Christ's Hospital. Though Reynolds attended Christ’s Hospital years after its most famous sons Coleridge, Lamb, and Leigh Hunt, he later became part of the literary circles of London in which they all socialized.

In 1817 Leigh Hunt wrote an article in his Examiner entitled ‘Young Poets’ which included Reynolds with Shelley and Keats as one of England’s most promising young literary talents. Reynolds’ precociousness did not, however, lead to poetic success to the degree of his peers. Reynolds’ literary fame is largely dependent on his close friendship with Keats, with whom he was on intimate terms for a few years. Later he became close friends with Thomas Hood with whom he worked on the London Magazine. With Hood Reynolds published the Odes and Addresses to Great People in 1825. The book was reviewed by Charles Lamb and mistakenly thought to have been written by him by a number of people including Coleridge. Lamb wrote a letter to Coleridge on July 2nd of 1825 confessing that he had not written the book.

Though Reynolds wrote numerous essay contributions to a number of London periodicals, he failed to gain any significant success and largely gave up literature for the practice of law. In this field Reynolds was similarly unlucky when the law firm in which he worked folded. Later in life he worked as a clerk in the Isle of Wight.
