Abstract

This article looks at the changing attitude of the Blackwood's leading writers John Wilson and John Gibson Lockhart to the so-called Cockney Prose writers, Coleridge, Hazlitt, Hunt, Lamb, and Ollier. It shows how a tendency to lump all the Cockneys together in October 1817 slowly developed into a more discriminating attitude in the course of the revamped magazine's first year. It also shows how the principles behind that discrimination lay in Lockhart's reading of Schlegel's lectures, and in the models of scholarship and genial reading that were contained therein.
