Abstract

© 2016 British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. Robert Lovell (1771-1796) is known chiefly as one of the apostles of the ill-fated Pantisocratic emigration scheme conceived by Coleridge and Southey. This essay considers Lovell’s life and work in their own right. It establishes the biographical facts and builds a portrait of his character and personality.With reference to recent work on the importance of literary coteries, it re-evaluates Lovell’s role in Joseph Cottle’s circle and in the cultural life of eighteenth-century Bristol. It also undertakes a fresh assessment of Lovell’s own poetry, with a particular focus on his treatment of his home city in Bristol: A Satire (1794).
