Thomas Talfourd, judge, author and politician, began writing poetry while in high school. His first volume of poetry was published in 1811. After high school, he studied law and was called to the bar in 1821. He was appointed judge in the Court of Common Pleas in 1849. During this time, he also served as MP in 1835, 1837 and 1847.

Talfourd also devoted much of his energies to literature. He wrote numerous articles for The Pamphleteer including essays on Charles Lamb. His subsequent meeting with Lamb resulted in his joing the literary circle surrounding Hazlitt, Wordsworth and Coleridge. He then wrote many articles for The New Monthly and continued writing poetry. Talfourd is best known for his tragedies especially Ion (1836). He also wrote The Memoirs of Charles Lamb (1837) and (1848).
