Walter Savage Landor


English writer and poet.

His best known works were the prose Imaginary Conversations (1824-1853), and the poem Rose Aylmer, but the critical acclaim he received from contemporary poets and reviewers was not matched by public popularity. As remarkable as his work was, it was equalled by his rumbustious character and lively temperament.

He died on 17 September 1864.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "The Nineteenth century and after," Volume 91, (Leonard Scott Pub. Co., 1922): "I have seen the house and the room in which Landor was born about 3 o'clock in the afternoon -- to be as precise as possible -- of January 30, 1775. Both house and room are in the town of Warwick."
