Born at Liverpool, England, January 20, 1866. He was already
a well-known poet, novelist, and critic when he took up his residence
in the United States. In each of these fields Mr. Le Gallienne
has achieved conspicuous success and it would be difficult to say
what phase of his literary work should take precedence of the others.
Among the best known of his prose works are: "The Quest of the Golden Girl",
"Book Bills of Narcissus", "An Old Country House", "Little Dinners
with the Sphinx", etc. In criticism he has done particularly fine work
in his study of George Meredith and in his volume, "Attitudes and Avowals".
In poetry, with which we are chiefly concerned, he has given us
several volumes distinguished by that delicacy and sensitive feeling
for beauty which characterize all of his work. These are:
"English Poems", 1892; "Stevenson, and Other Poems", 1895;
"New Poems", 1909; "The Lonely Dancer", 1913. In addition to these volumes,
Mr. Le Gallienne has made an admirable paraphrase of the "Rubáiyát"
of Omar Khayyám and of a group of odes from the "Divan" of Hafiz.
