Richard Le Gallienne (1866-1947) was an English poet, critic and essayist. He was born in Liverpool to Jane and John Le Gallienne, the manager of a Birkenhead brewery. Le Gallienne was educated at Liverpool College and apprenticed to a firm of accountants, but found the work dull and cultivated his literary tastes instead. He published his first volume of poems privately. Le Gallienne sent some of his poems to Oliver Wendell Holmes, who encouraged him to pursue a literary career. Le Gallienne then moved to London, where he met such notable literary figures as George Meredith, Swinburne and Oscar Wilde. He became a publisher's reader for the Bodley Head and principal reviewer for the London Star. Developing a wide acquaintance in the literary circles of the 1890s, Le Gallienne frequented many parties and belonged to the well-known Rhymers' Club (along with W. B. Yeats, Ernest Dowson, Arthur Symons and others). During this period, he produced a wide range of literary work, including poems, essays and novels. In 1901, Le Gallienne moved to the U. S. and continued to make his living by writing a variety of essays, fiction, translations and anthologies. He had a special interest in the literature of the Orient, and wrote on many subjects, both literary and otherwise. The last part of Le Gallienne's life was spent mainly in France and was devoted to essays and books about Paris.
