John Wolcot (aka “Peter Pindar, Esq.”), the most popular oppositional satirist in the 1780s and '90s, received scant attention from the emerging Romantic coterie. With particular reference to Coleridge's and Shelley's scattered observations on Wolcot, this essay argues that the marginalization of Wolcot from critical discussion bespeaks the influential presence of satire, radical politics, and populist discourse in the making of Romantic notions of the cultural and moral role of poetry and the poet.
