Thomas Chatterton was in many ways a typical adolescent. During the seventeen years of his life, he was an exuberant player in the artistic, intellectual, religious, political, and sexual adventures we have come to expect of not-quite-adults.

Even his suicide marked him as a typical, if extreme, example of the Sturm und Drang image of adolescence, But he was not merely an ordinary adolescent. He was an impostor, and indeed he grew up in the precise family environment that is believed to promote imposturousness. He was a fatherless boy raised by an adoring, idealizing mother and sister, both of whom encouraged his tendencies toward grandiosity and exceptionality. Chatterton was an artistically gifted but whose poetic talents flourished during adolescence.
