Herbert Knowles (1798–1817)

Knowles, Herbert. An English poet; born at Gomersal, near Leeds, 1798; died there, Feb. 17, 1817. His reputation rests wholly on the poem ‘The Three Tabernacles,’ known otherwise as ‘Stanzas in Richmond Churchyard,’ written Oct. 7, 1816, when he was only eighteen years old. While precocious, it is mature in thought, feeling, and in form.
