Arthur Symons

Arthur Symons (1865 – 1945) was a British poet, translator and critic. He was born in Wales but spent most of his life in London. A two-volume collected Poems appeared in 1902, after which he wrote almost nothing due to ill health. His work explores love, loss and the passage of time. His seminal book The Symbolist Movement in Literature (1899) introduced Symbolism to a British readership.
