Clough, Arthur Hugh

(1819-1861)
   The son of a prosperous Liverpool cotton merchant, he spent some of his early years in South Carolina. He was educated at Rugby School under Thomas Arnold and at Balliol College, Oxford. In 1842 he was elected to a fellowship at Oriel College. He spent some time in France and Italy, then became the head of University Hall, London, in 1849. After two years he gave up and sailed to Boston, Massachusetts, in 1852 in the same ship with Thackeray and Lowell Emerson. There he worked in education but returned to England after one year. While traveling in Italy he contracted malaria, from which he died, leaving much of his work to be published posthumously. His main (often very long) poems are: The Bothie of Toper-naVuolich, 1848 (a novel in verse). Amours de Voyage, 1858. Poems, 1862. Dipsychus, 1865. Some of his other poems: "A Highland Glen near Loch Ericht," "Genesis XXIV," "Seven Sonnets," "That out of sight is out of mind," "The mighty ocean rolls and raves," "When Israel Came Out of Egypt," "Where lies the land to which the ship would go?"
