Virtual Wednesday Lecture, on Zoom
by Mark Roberts
Walter Savage Landor (1775-1864) was famous in our great-grandparents' day as the author of the Imaginary Conversations and of a considerable body of verse, though his writings are now neglected. Landor came to Florence in 1821 and stayed for 14 years, buying a splendid villa in Fiesole; he returned for the final years of his life and is buried in the English Cemetery. His life was a catalogue of incidents and misfortunes, many of them self-inflicted, but he was a highly respected literary figure who influenced a generation of major writers such as Dickens, Tennyson and Browning
