In 1820 William Hazlitt took rooms in London. His landlady had a pretty daughter who brought him his breakfast each day. She was 19 and he was 22 years older, but Hazlitt was soon totally infatuated with Sarah Walker. Married already, he could not offer marriage, but was wildly jealous when she flirted with another lodger. He poured his frustrations into Liber Amoris and thought of suicide. His love was a strange and one-sided obsession.
