Born: Sep. 11,1700 - Edmam, Scotland

Died: Aug. 27, 1748 - Richmond-Upon-Thames, England

Educated at the Jedburgh Grammar School and the College of Edinburgh where he studied metaphysics, logic and the classics. In 1719, without graduating, he entered Divinity Hall in order to become a minister. He became a member of the Grotesques Club, a literary group that encouraged his writing. He published some poems in the Edinburgh Miscellany and moved to London in 1725. There, he tutored the son of Lord Bining. By 1727, he was working at Watts' Academy. In 1730, he became tutor to the son of Sir Charles Talbot. In 1740, the Prince of Wales awarded him a pension of £100 a year. Thomson's words for Rule Britannia were written for, the now forgotten, masque of the same name and put to music by Thomas Arne. Thomson caught a cold which developed into pneumonia ad resulted in his death at only 48. His works include A Poem to the Memory of Sir Isaac Newton (1727), The Tragedy of Sophonispa (1729), The Four Seasons and Other Poems (1734), Liberty (1734), Agamemnon (1738) and The Castle of Indolence (1748).
