Samuel Rogers, 1763–1855, English poet. Independently wealthy, he owned a beautiful home on St. James Street, Westminster, which became the center of literary society. He was famous for his conversation and numbered Byron, Lamb, and Wordsworth among his friends. His poetry, which includes Pleasures of Memory (1792), Jacqueline (1814), and Italy (2 vol., 1822–28), is graceful but undistinguished. He also wrote Table Talk (1856) and Recollections (1859).
