Samuel Rogers

Born 1763.—Died 1855.—George III.—George IV.—William IV.—Victoria.

A poet, whose reputation was perhaps greater than his works.  His Pleasures of Memory  and Italy  are those chiefly known, but he wrote a variety of smaller poems of great beauty and finish.  His knowledge of literature and conversational powers were extraordinary.
