Throughout his professional life, the poet Thomas Moore (1779-1852) was variously celebrated and vilified for both his verse and his politics. Born in Dublin, he remained an ardent Irish patriot until his death. This eight-volume collection of Moore's memoirs, diaries and letters, edited by his friend Lord John Russell (1792-1878) and first published between 1853 and 1856, provides rare insights into a man whose genius was applauded by the Morning Chronicle as 'embracing almost all sides of imaginative literature, of criticism and philosophy'. Volume 1 contains Moore's incomplete memoir, described by the Manchester Times as 'a readable and gossiping article', along with his personal correspondence from the period 1793-1813. The other volumes cover the period 1814-47, containing extensive diary entries. Volume 8 includes a selection of correspondence from 1799 to 1847, along with Russell's postscript and an index to the eight volumes.
