Thomas Miller (poet)

Thomas Miller (31 August, 1807 – 24 October, 1874), poet and novelist, of humble parentage, worked in early life as a basket-maker. He published "Songs of the Sea Nymphs" (1832). Going to London he was befriended by Lady Blessington and Samuel Rogers, and for a time engaged in business as a bookseller, but was unsuccessful and devoted himself exclusively to literature, producing over 40 volumes, including several novels, e.g., "Royston Gower" (1838), "Gideon Giles the Roper", and "Rural Sketches". In his stories he successfully delineated rural characters and scenes.
