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.
