About the Author

SUE LLOYD was born in Keynsham, England, and studied at Bristol University. After teaching in East Africa, she returned to England, settling in Norfolk. Here she researched her Master's degree on Cyrano de Bergerac (University of East Anglia, 1977), which revived her longstanding interest in Edmond Rostand. In 1982, her new edition of Roget's Thesaurus for Longman, the first for twenty years, became a world best-seller. A Penguin edition followed, along with contributions to dictionaries and other wordbooks. After a further period in East Africa, she now lives in Southwest England.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this book. It was informative, easy to read, and written in a clever way, revealing his life as though it were set on a stage. Sue Lloyd sheds some well deserved light on a great poet that has gone too long without the recognition owed to him.
