Edgar Fawcett (May 26, 1847 - May 2, 1904) was an American novelist and poet. Fawcett was born in New York on May 26, 1847, and spent much of his life there. Educated at Columbia College, he obtained the A.B. there in 1867 and his M.A. three years later. At Columbia, he was a member of the Fraternity of Delta Phi.[1] Although successful in his time, his works are mostly forgotten today. His best known novels, such as 1873's Purple and Fine Linen and 1898's New York, were satirical studies of New York high society. Fawcett also wrote a parody of the King Arthur legends entitled the New King Arthur: An Opera Without Music (1885), as well as numerous works for children, such as 1872's Short Poems for Short People. His volumes of verse included 1884's Song and Story and 1891's Songs of Doubt and Dream. His verse was frequently anthologized. Fawcett spent many of the last years of his life in London, where he died on May 2, 1904. A study by Stanley R. Harrison, entitled Edgar Fawcett, was published in 1972....
