ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Morgan Peter Kavanagh

(1800 ca.-1874)


Little seems to be recorded of Morgan Peter Kavanagh apart from the facts that he was born in Ireland , had no formal education, that he published poems, novels, and philological essays, and that his daughter was the better-known Irish novelist Julia Kavanagh. From Martin MacDermot's preface to Lucan and Dinah one can infer that early in life Kavanagh worked as an agricultural laborer.
