Morris, Lewis, 1833-1907Alternative names
Poet Lewis Morris was born in Wales and educated at Oxford. He practiced law, and became active in politics, serving on several government committees, although he was never elected to Parliament despite several attempts. A great admirer of Tennyson, he wrote a substantial amount of poetry, which is generally considered sentimental and rather facile. Although his verse was technically proficient and exceptionally popular in his day, it was uninspired, and has not lasted.
