1884. Poet, classicist and essayist, Landor's strong views and quick temper led him into many disputes and following a potential law suit for libel he spent the remainder of his life, from 1858, on the continent, particularly Florence. He is now remembered more for his prose than his poetry, his best known work being Imaginary conversations of literary men and statesmen, a series of dramatic dialogues. Pericles and Aspasia is a rendering of classical Athens through a series of imaginary letters.
