Henry Morley

Morley, Henry, 1822–94, English man of letters. In 1850 he closed his successful school to assist Dickens in editing Household Words. After that he combined an editorial with an academic career, teaching English literature at several universities. Author of several biographies and critical studies, he wrote English Writers (1887–95), an unfinished 11-volume history of English literature. As editor of Morley's University Library, Cassell's National Library, and other series, he produced low-priced editions of literary classics.
