About Book

Book Description
Alfred Noyes was an English poet, best known for his ballads The Highwayman (1906) and The Barrel Organ. At the age of 21, he published his first collection of poems, The Loom Years. From 1903 to 1908, he published five volumes of poetry books, including The Forest of Wild Thyme and The Flower of Old Japan and Other Poems. In 1907, he was given the opportunity to teach English literature at Princeton University. His wife died in 1926, resulting in his conversion to Roman Catholicism. He wrote about his conversion in The Unknown God, published in 1934. In 1953, his autobiography, Two Worlds for Memory, was published. He authored around sixty books, including poetry volumes, novels, and short stories. Noyes' poetry supports patriotism and war heroes, reflects his appreciation for nature, his respect for explorers of the scientific world, and his faith in God.
