Moore, Thomas (17791852)

Moore, Thomas, the Bard of Erin, born in Dublin, the son of a grocer, studied at Trinity College; went to London with a translation of “Anacreon,” which gained him favour and a valuable appointment in the Bermudas in 1803; fought a duel with Jeffrey in 1806, began his “Irish Melodies” in 1807, and published “The Twopenny Postbag” in 1812; in 1817 appeared “Lalla Rookh,” a collection of Oriental tales, and in 1818 a satiric piece “The Fudge Family,” and published a Life of Byron in 1830; Moore's songs were written to Irish airs, and they contributed much to ensure Catholic emancipation (17791852).
