Gordon Bottomley

Author Code: EGBL

Born: Feb. 20, 1874 - Keighley, Yorkshire, England

Died: Aug. 25, 1948 - Oare Wilcot, Wiltshire, England

With only a grammar school education, Bottomley began working as a bank clerk when he was sixteen. Suffering from numerous illnesses, including tuberculosis, Bottomey was effectively a semi-invalid for most of his life. He began to write poetry during illness which kept him bed-ridden and produced some very fine verse dramas, many with a Celtic backdrop such as The Riding to Lithend (1909). He was a close friend of the painter Paul Nash, the correspondence of which was later published (Poet and Painter) in 1955. He married in 1905 to Emily Burton, an artist who became his life-long companion and supporter. In 1896, he published The Mickle Drede, a critically acclaimed book of verse that was subsequently included in the first series of Georgian Poetry in 1912. Attracted to the theatre, Bottomley produced King Lear's Wife in 1915 and Gruach in 1921. Gruach won the Femina Vie Heureuse prize in Paris in 1923. He encouraged the poet Isaac Rosenberg, whose life was cut tragically short in World War I, and edited his Collected Works in 1922. In 1926, he was elected to the Royal Society of Literature. His other works include Poems on White Nights (1899), The Cries by Night (1902), Midsummer Eve (1905), A Vision of Giorgione (1910), Britain's Daughter (1921), Poems of Thirty Years (1925), Festival Preludes (1930) and Kate Kennedy (1945).
