CHATTERTON

 
 
 
The Bristol Boy-Poet. This is the house he was born in, opposite St. Mary Redcliffe Church.
 

I thought of Chatterton, the marvellous Boy,
The sleepless Soul that perish'd in its pride; . . .
By our own spirits are we deified;
We Poets in our youth begin in gladness;
But thereof comes in the end despondency and madness.

"Resolution and Independence"
William Wordsworth
