Quiller-Couch, Sir Arthur Thomas (kwĭlˈər-kōchˌ) [key], pseud. Q, 1863–1944, English author. Among the novels of his native Cornwall are Dead Man's Rock (1887) and Hetty Wesley (1903), which are romantic in spirit yet distinguished for their clear and colorful style. He also wrote essays, lectures, and poetry and was the editor of many anthologies, including the Oxford Book of English Verse (1900) and the Oxford Book of English Prose (1923). He was knighted in 1910.

See his unfinished autobiography, Memories and Opinions (1945); study by H. Hanff (1985).
