The special exhibit on William Hazlitt’s 1824 work Spirit of the Age remains at The Wordsworth Museum at Dove Cottage through June 6. The Wordsworth Trust will publish a new edition of The Spirit of the Age to coincide with the exhibition, with a preface by Michael Foot and illustrated with the portraits from the exhibition. Besides Wordsworth and Coleridge, the exhibit includes portraits of Thomas Malthus, Jeremy Bentham, Leigh Hunt, and William Wilberforce. Tom Paulin reviews the exhibit in The Guardian for April 10.
