THOMAS CHATTERTON (1752-1770), English poet, was born at Bristol on the loth of November 1752.
Chatterton remained an inmate of Colston's hospital for upwards of six years, and the slight advantages gained from this scanty education are traceable to the friendly sympathy of Phillips, himself a writer of verse, who encouraged his pupils to write.
Chatterton, conceiving the idea of finding sympathy and aid at the hand of some modern Canynge, bethought him of Horace Walpole, who not only indulged in a medieval renaissance of his own, but was the reputed author of a spurious antique in the Castle of Otranto.

Assuming the vein of Junius - then in the full blaze of his triumph - he turned, his pen against the Duke of Grafton, the Earl of Bute, and Augusta of Saxe-Gotha, the Princess of Wales.
The collection of poems in which such specimens occur furnishes by far the most remarkable example of intellectual precocity in the whole history of English literature.
This was reprinted in the edition (1803) of Chatterton's Works by Robert Southey and J Cottle, published for the benefit of the poet's sister.

 Thomas Chatterton and the Rowley Poems
As a young boy growing up in Bristol, Thomas Chatterton (1752-1770) spent a great deal of time with his uncle, the sexton of the St. Mary Redcliffe Church.
A sensitive, artistic child, Chatterton began to imagine what the life of the monks who had lived in the church during the fifteenth century must have been like.
Most children manage to maintain a line between their imaginary life and reality, but Chatterton's medieval fantasy world materialized into solid, tangible form when he claimed to find poetry tucked away in a back room of the church that had been written by his imaginary priest.

Dr Nick Groom, Reader in English Literature at Bristol University and Secretary of the Thomas Chatterton Society, said: “Chatterton is one of the most interesting, inspiring, and influential poets in English literature, yet until recently has remained in relative neglect, considered at best to be a maverick, at worst a literary forger.

Samuel Johnson, a contemporary, said of Chatterton: “This is the most extraordinary young man that encountered my knowledge.

 Thomas Chatterton - Collection Introduction
In 1880 DGR became preoccupied with the late eighteenth-century poet-prodigy Thomas Chatterton (1752-1770), who committed suicide in London at age 17.
I reflected that my meaning in the line ‘Even to that unknown shrine else deified’ was not that it would have been deified if known, but would have been so except for the interruption of his work by the death he chose.
Although DGR originally wrote this sonnet to accompany Watts-Dunton's edition of Chatterton, (see Allen, Dear Mr Rossetti, 105), it seems clear that by July 1880, when he sent it to Christina and his mother, the sonnet was not going to be published in that way.
