Richard Aldington

a.k.a. Edward Godfree Aldington

Author Code: ERAX

Born: Jul. 8, 1892 - Portsmouth, Hampshire, England

Died: Jul. 27, 1962 - Aix-en-Provence, France

Educated at Dover College and the University of London, Aldington did not graduate owing to financial difficulties. He began to write poetry and, while in London, he met Ezra Pound who introduced him to the author Hilda Doolittle (known as H.D.), his future wife. In 1912, he traveled to Paris and Italy. He married H.D. in the autumn of 1913. From 1914 to 1916 he was the literary editor of The Egoist and became one of the 'imagist' poets. In 1915, he published Images (1910-1915) which was acclaimed by Pound and others. In 1916, he entered the army and was subsequently commissioned in the Royal Sussexs and spent two years in France where he was wounded at the Western Front. His experiences in the war would have a lasting effect on Aldington and his writing. He separated from H.D. in 1919, although they were not divorced until 1938. That year, he published Images of War, which was very popular and remains one of his most important works. He was instrumental in helping T.S. Eliot to gain recognition, but would later reject his work. In 1929, Aldington published Death of a Hero, a war novel that is undoubtedly his best work. He spent many years abroad living in France and remarried in 1938. He moved to America in the early 1940's and began to write a number of biographies, culminating in Lawrence of Arabia: A Biographical Enquiry in 1955. The book caused quite a stir at the time since it was highly critical of Lawrence who many considered to be a hero, but his allegations have been subsequently confirmed by others. Aldington is one of the sixteen 'War Poets' commemorated at Westminster Abbey. His other works include War and Love: Poems 1915-1918 (1919), Medallions in Clay (1921), Exile and Other Poems (1923), A Fall I' the Forest (1924), D. H. Lawrence: An Indiscretion (1927), At All Costs (1930), Roads to Glory (1930), The Colonel's Daughter (1931), Women Must Work (1933), The Crystal World (1937), A Life of Wellington (1946), The Romance of Casanova (1946), Jane Austen (1948), Introduction to Mistral (1956) and Frauds (1957).
