Although he was not a Catholic, he became a fiery advocate of Catholic Emancipation in Britain. Through the seeming contradictions in Cobbett's life, his opposition to authority stayed constant. He wrote many polemics, on subjects from political reform to religion, but is best known for his book from 1830, Rural Rides, which is still in print today. (en)

  • William Cobbett (Farnham, 9 de março de 1763 — 18 de junho de 1835) foi um gramático, jornalista, político e naturalista britânico. Durante a adolescência, seguiu a carreira militar e por isso passou um tempo em Halifax, licenciando no exército em 1791. Entre 1792 e 1800, viveu nos Estados Unidos, quando se casou em Woolwich com Anne Reid. Escreveu El amigo del soldado (1792) como uma crítica e protesto contra os baixos salários e maus tratos aos soldados alistados no exército britânico, e fugiu para França em março do mesmo ano de publicação desta obra para evitar represálias e aprender a língua francesa; no entanto, voltou aos Estados Unidos e se estabeleceu em Wilmington, onde seguiu publicando outras obras com o pseudônimo de Peter Porcupine enquanto sobrevivia como professor de inglês e francês. Foi um precursor dos cartistas ao defender o sufrágio universal e a melhoria das condições de vida dos trabalhadores. Foi um crítico do imperialismo no livro "Pereça o Comércio" (1806). Influenciou Karl Marx que se referiu à Cobbett como o "maior escritos político da Inglaterra no Século XIX". (pt)
