Excerpt from The Life of Nelson

Robert southey was born at Bristol, England, on the 12th of August, 1774. He was the second son of Thomas Southey, a linen draper at Bristol, and his wife, for merly Miss Hill, daughter of an attorney at Bedminster. Southey's childhood was principally spent at Bath, in the house of a maiden aunt, who kept him very quiet during the day, and took him to the theater almost nightly. I had little propensity, he says, to any boyish sports, and less expertness in them. He read widely for a. Child, however. I went through Beaumont and Fletcher before I was eight years old. This was in addition to Shake speare. Before he was fourteen he had read translations of the Italian poets Tasso and Ariosto, Pope's Homer, Spenser's Fairy Queen, Sidney's Arcadia, and had saved enough of his pocket money to purchase the works of the Jewish historian Josephus.
