Charles Walter Stansby Williams
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 20, 1886
Death: May 15, 1945

British poet, author, scholar, novelist, theologian, and literary critic. He was educated at St. Alban's School and at University College, London. In 1908 Williams joined the Oxford University Press as a reader, and remained a member of the staff, increasingly valued and much beloved, until his death. His duties, however, as literary adviser in a publisher's office, although carried out with enthusiasm and wisdom, occupied a relatively small place in his life. In 1912 he published his first book of verse, "The Silver Stair," and, for the next thirty-three years, wrote, lectured and conversed with a tireless and brilliant energy. In that time he produced, apart from anthologies, a number of prefaces, and a rarely interrupted series of reviews, over thirty volumes of poetry, plays, literary criticism, fiction, biography, and theological argument.
