Meet the Author

Literary scholar and Cornwall historian, Frank Ernest Halliday, was born in Bradford, Yorkshire and was educated at King’s College, Cambridge. He taught at Cheltenham College for many years and was head of the English Department.

Later, he moved to St. Ives, Cornwall, where he remained for the rest of his life, devoting his time to extensive research and writing, typing with two fingers on a rickety, antique typewriter. His vigorous, uncluttered and well informed work amounted to twenty-four volumes, ranging from the history of his adopted county to many on Shakespeare, as well as illuminating biographies of great English writers such as Thomas Hardy, Geoffrey Chaucer, Robert Browning, Doctor Johnson and William Wordsworth.

F.E. Halliday died in 1982.
