Person  Male  Born 6/6/1862  Died 19/4/1938

Categories: Poetry

Poet. Also: lawyer, novelist, playwright and magazine editor. Born Staffordshire. Famous for one poem: 'Vitai Lampada'. Written in 1897 this oh-so-British plea for war to be played in the same spirit as cricket was immensely popular at the time and again at the start of WW1. Subsequently it fell out of favour, especially with its author.
