Poet. Born in Powick, England, he was a noted poet and author. His early poetry was in the Uranian theme, through his relationship with novelist Oscar Wilde. Educated at Magdalen College Oxford, known to his friends as 'Bosie', in 1893, he was commissioned to translate Wilde’s French “Salomé” into English. Advancing with his own work, he wrote “Poems” (1896), “The Placid Pug” (1906), “Sonnets” (1909), “In Excelsis” (1924), “Lyrics” (1935) and many more. He was also the editor of a literary journal, “The Academy” (1907-10) and throughout the 1930s, until his death, he made public appearances as a lecturer to the Royal Society of Literature. He died of heart failure at age 74 in Lansing, England.
