Charles Stuart Calverley

Calverley, Charles Stuart, 1831–84, English poet and translator. Expelled from Oxford for a youthful prank, he earned academic honors at Cambridge. He became famous for the wit and erudition of his light verse, particularly his parodies (published under the initials C. S. C.). A barrister, he suffered an injury in 1867 that resulted in a brain concussion and curtailed his legal career. His published works include Translations into English and Latin (1866) and Fly Leaves (1872).
