An editor, publisher, poet, and humorist, Thomas Hood was born in London, the son of a bookseller. As a member of the London literary scene, he was familiar with Hartley Coleridge, Thomas De Quincy, William Hazlitt, Charles Lamb, and William Wordsworth. Though he was known for his light verse and puns, Hood also depicted the working conditions of the poor.
