Arthur William Edgar O'Shaughnessy

O'Shaughnessy, Arthur William Edgar (ōshônˈəsē) [key], 1844–81, English poet and naturalist. He was a member of the zoological department of the British Museum. He wrote four volumes of poetry— Epic of Women (1870), Lays of France (1872), Music and Moonlight (1874), and Songs of a Worker (1881)—which all reveal the influence of D. G. Rossetti. One ode, beginning, "We are the music-makers," is his best-known poem.
