Watson, William (b. 1858)

Watson, William, poet, born in Yorkshire; the first poem which procured him recognition was “Wordsworth's Grave,” and his subsequent poems have confirmed the impression produced, in especial his “Lachrymæ Musarum,” one of the finest tributes paid to the memory of Tennyson on the occasion of his death; among his later productions the most important is a volume entitled “Odes and other Poems,” published in 1894; has also written an admirable volume of essays, “Excursions in Criticism”; (b. 1858).
