JohnMcDonald15: Thomas Lovell Beddoes (1803-1849) Macabre poet nearly contemporary with Poe. I usually bring him out on Holloween. I think there is only one portrait of him & it is very inadequate.

macleod_miss: January 20th is a short but sweet one by Thomas Lovell Beddoes. I'd never heard of Beddoes but after researching him I'm surprised that the poem is as positive as it is given his tragic life. This just goes to prove that you can never guess what's going on in someone's head.

JohnMcDonald15: Thomas Lovell Beddoes (1803-1849) is a Halloween tradition of mine. Graves, ghosts, moonlight, dead lovers, etc. He is best in parts, but some of those parts are brilliant lyric poetry. Nothing quite like him in English, though similar to some early Romantic German poetry.

JohnMcDonald15: Here are some of his poems, most if them bizarre, if not spooky.
