Alfred Noyes (1880-1958), Poet

Sitter in 28 portraits
Alfred Noyes was a poet, remembered chiefly for his lyrical verse. Noyes' first volume of poems, The Loom of Years (1902), published while he was still at the University of Oxford, was followed by others that showed patriotic fervour and a love for the sea. He taught modern English literature at Princeton University in the United States from 1914 to 1923. Of Noyes's later works, the most notable is the epic trilogy The Torch-Bearers (1922-30), which took as its theme the progress of science through the ages. His autobiography, Two Worlds for Memory, appeared in 1953.
