Thomas Moore (1779-1852) was one of the most prominent authors of the early nineteenth century - even being labelled the 'National Poet of Ireland'. Although once out of favour, it is no exaggeration to say that interest in Moore has exploded over the last decade. His circle of friends was enormous and included luminaries such as Lord Byron and William Godwin, as well as many influential figures in English and Irish politics.This collection presents over six hundred previously unpublished letters from numerous libraries, archives and other sources in the UK, Ireland and America. Also included are excerpts from hundreds of Moore's letters to his music publisher, James Power, which have not been published since 1854.Vail's extensively-annotated edition will make available a treasure trove of material which will prove invaluable to any serious Romantic scholar.
