A Brief William James Linton Bio

by PoetrySoup
Linton (William James), poet, engraver, and author, b. at London, 1812. A Chartist in early life, he was intimately associated with the chief political refugees. He contributed to the democratic press, and also, we believe, to the Oracle of Reason. He wrote the Reasoner tract on “The Worth of Christianity.” He was one of the founders of the Leader, has edited the Truthseeker, the National and the English Republic, and has published Famine a Masque, a Life of Paine, and a memoir of [211]James Watson and some volumes of poems. In ’67 he went to America, but has recently returned.
