Excerpt from Dictionary of National Biography, Vol. 7: Brown Burthogge Character drawn chie from his Works, ' London, 1838. Brown edicated the book to Landor, with whom he had first discussed its subject at Florence in 1828. It is Brown's endeavour to Show that Shakespeare's sonnets conceal a fairly com lete autobiography of the poet, and althoug Boaden had eu gested a similar theory in 1812, Brown was tie first to treat it with adequate fulness or know ledge. Brown often Illustrates Shakespeare from Italian literature, with which he was widely acquainted. Lord Houghton as that Keats learned from Brown all that e knew of Ariosto, and that Brown scarce] let a day pass in Italy without translating m the Italian. His complete and admirable Version of the first five Cantos of Boiardo's Orlando Innamorato (houghton) was unfortunately never published. Of Brown's contributions to periodical literature, his ers in the 'liberal, ' Signed Carlone and ar ucci, are very ood reading. One called'les Charmettes and Rousseau has been wrongly assi ed to Charles Lamb, and another, Orr Shaigspeare's Fools, ' equally wrongly to Charles Cowden Clarke. A sto in the 'ex aminer' for 1823 entitled La 11a Tabac caia is also by Brown. Various references to Brown in the letters of his litera friends, among whom Hazlitt and Leigh unt are to be included, prove that he was at all' times excellent company. Leigh Hunt is believed to refer to him in the Tatler' for 14 Jan. 1831, as 'one of the most gums wits now living.' Joseph Severn, ats's friend, maintained a fairly regular corre Spondence with Brown for more than twenty years (1820 and many of Brown's letters to Severn and other literary friends will be rinted in the 'severn Memoirs, ' edited by r. William Sharp. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
