Sir William Watson (1858 – 1935), was an English poet, popular for the political content of his verse.He was very much on the traditionalist wing of English poetry. He was a prolific poet of the 1890s, and a contributor to The Yellow Book, a leading journal of the British 1890s; associated with Aestheticism and Decadence,.. On Tennyson's death, Watson was a strong candidate for Poet Laureate but his earlier opposition to the Boer War had made him politically unsuitable and he was passed over for Alfred Austin. This is a collection of essays on various authors, including Keats, Hardy, Lowell, Coleridge, Hutton, Dobson, Ibsen, Meredith, and Johnson. Conditon is VG. Brown cloth has some fading and bumps to corners and edges. Interior is NF, printed on heavy deckle edged paper. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 166 pages
