Alexander Smith

Author Code: EASM

Born: Dec. 31, 1830 - Kilmarnock, Scotland

Died: Jan. 8, 1867 - Wardie, Edinburgh, Scotland

Coming from a poor Scottish Lowlands family, Smith's education was limited and he began working in a Glasgow linen factory. His interest in poetry led to the publication of his first book of verse, A Life Drama and Other Poems, in 1853 which was critically acclaimed. Smith's work belongs to what is known as the Spasmodic school, originally a term coined by William Aytoun to describe poetry in which psychological drama and violence played a central role. In 1855, Smith collaborated with his friend Sydney Dobell on War Sonnets, which was inspired by events of the Crimean War. In later years, Smith turned to prose and produced two novels and a number of essays. His works include City Poems (1857), Edwin of Deira (1861), Dreamthorp: Essays Written in the Country (1863), A Summer in Skye (1865) and Alfred Haggart's Household (1866).
