A kitten is, in the animal world, what a rosebud is in the garden.-Robert Southey
Robert Southey – August 1774 – 21 March 1843) was an English poet.

Robert Southey: Entire Man of Letters. This is what the book summary has to say – directly quoted from Amazon
In his lifetime Robert Southey was very much the equal of his fellow ‘Lake poets’, Coleridge and Wordsworth. But since his death his reputation has been overshadowed by their success. In this new biography W.A. Speck argues that if Southey’s poetry is no longer considered as significant, his other writings were more salient and his political views far more influential than those of his fellow poets.
