Description: Ebenezer Elliott (1781 – 1849) was an English poet, known as the "Corn Law Rhymer" for leading the fight to repeal the Corn Laws which were causing hardship and starvation among the poor. Though a factory owner himself, his single-minded devotion to the welfare of the labouring classes won him a sympathetic reputation long after his poetry ceased to be read.
