Acclaimed by Dickens, the Brownings, and the Rossettis, Hoods quirky, diverse output between 1820 and 1845 offers fascinating insights for Romanticists and Victorianists alike.

Sara Lodges book explores the relationship between Hoods playfulness, liberal politics, and contemporary cultural debate about labor and recreation, literary materiality, and urban consumption. Each chapter examines something distinctive of interdisciplinary interest, including: the early 19th century print culture into which Hood was born- the traditional, urban, and political ramifications of the grotesque art and literature aesthetic- the cultural politics of Hoods trademark puns- theatre, leisure, and the labor question.
