George Crabbe
Birth: Dec. 24, 1754
Death: Feb. 3, 1832

Poet. Born in the tiny fishing village of Aldeburgh, Suffolk, he first studied medicine, graduating in 1775. Four years later he left Suffolk and travelled to London to take up writing seriously. His major works include: "The Village" (1783), "The Borough" (1810), "Tales in Verse" (1812), and "Tales of the Hall" (1819). Crabbe was renowned in a circle of noted literary friends which included William Wordsworth and Sir Walter Scott. "The Borough" later served as the basis for Benjamin Britten's famous opera, "Peter Grimes" (1945). (bio by: s.canning)
