BeschreibungWilliam Allingham (1824-89) was born in Co. Donegal, but moved to England and served for many years in the customs service. After his retirement he edited Fraser's Magazine, and was a friend of Tennyson, Coventry Patmore, and the Pre-Raphaelites. He published several volumes of verse. Laurence Bloomfield in Ireland, first published in 1864, takes as its theme the perennial conflict between landlords and tenants in Ireland. Allingham's knowledge of his countrymen of all classes, his deep love of the Irish countryside, and his fair-minded sympathy make this his most important poem and an illuminating insight into Irish life and agrarian politics. In 1904 Yeats wrote that he had 'the greatest possible admiration for Mr Allingham's poetry. I am sometimes inclined to believe that he was my own master in Irish verse'.
