Jones, Ebenezer oldala, Angol életrajz
Ebenezer Jones (1820–1860) wrote a good deal of poetry of very unequal merit, but at his best shows a true poetic vein. He was befriended by Browning and Rossetti. His Studies of Sensation and Event (1843) was his best known work, along with poems "To the Snow," "To Death," and "When the World is Burning." Ebenezer Jones also wrote an excellent short book entitled "The Land Monopoly: The Suffering and Demoralization Caused by It; and the Justice and Expediency of its Abolition", published in 1849. It could reasonably be considered a precursor for Henry George's "Progress and Poverty" (1879), one of the most important books ever on political economy. "The Land Monopoly" delves into themes developed in more detail by Henry George. His marriage ended in separation.
