Eric Stenbock

a.k.a. Count Eric Stanislaus Stenbock

Author Code: GESS

Born: Mar. 12, 1860 - Cheltenham, England

Died: Apr. 26, 1895 - Brighton, England

From a distinguished Baltic German noble family, Stenbock attended Balliol College, Oxford, but did not graduate. He became good friends with Oscar Wilde, who no doubt encouraged his writing. Apart from a short period in Estonia where he inherited the family estates and the title of Count, Stenbock spent most of his years in England. In 1881, he published Love, Sleep and Dreams, his first book of poetry. An extreme eccentric, Stenbock was a homosexual, drunkard, addicted to drugs and, no doubt, mentally unstable. Nevertheless, he is also said to have been charming and highly intelligent. His health began to decline around 1890 and he died at home, some say from an injury to his head from a fall and others that it was cirrhosis of the liver. Stenbock's writing was praised by his friends including Yeats and Beardsley, but today his works are rarely seen. His works include Myrtle, Rue and Cypress (1883), The Shadow of Death (1893) and Studies of Death (1894).
