Horace (born Horatio) Smith (31 December 1779 – 12 July 1849) was an English poet and novelist, perhaps best known for his participation in a sonnet-writing competition with Percy Bysshe Shelley. It was of him that Shelley said: "Is it not odd that the only truly generous person I ever knew who had money enough to be generous with should be a stockbroker? He writes poetry and pastoral dramas and yet knows how to make money, and does make it, and is still generous."

  • Horatio Smith, dit Horace, né le 31 décembre 1779, mort le 12 juillet 1849, est un poète et romancier anglais, peut-être plus connu pour l'écriture d'un sonnet en concurrence avec Ozymandias de Percy Bysshe Shelley. Ce dernier a dit à son sujet : « N'est-il pas étrange que la seule personne véritablement généreuse que j'aie jamais connu et qui ait assez d'argent pour l'être soit un courtier en bourse? Il écrit des poèmes et des drames pastoraux mais sait comment gagner de l'argent, et le fait, et il est toujours généreux. » (fr)
