Housman, Alfred Edward, 1859-1936 (poet)

 Person

Dates

  • Existence: 1859-1936

Alfred Edward Housman (1859-1936) was educated at Bromsgrove School and St. John's College, Oxford, where he obtained a first class in classical moderations in 1879, but failed to obtain honours in lit. hum. He worked in the Patent Office, 1882-1892, before becoming professor of Latin at University College, London, 1892-1911, and at Cambridge, 1911-1936. He published many articles and reviews of classical subjects, which covered most of the chief poets from Lucilius to Juvenal, as well as editing Ovid's Ibis (1894), the five Books of Manilius (1903-1930), Juvenal (1905), and Lucan (1926). He also wrote poetry, much of which was published. Housman refused all honours, but accepted an honorary fellowship of St John's College, Oxford, in 1911.
