Coventry Patmore Biography

Coventry Kersey Dighton Patmore (1823-1896) was an English poet, known for his long narrative poem "The Angel in the House" and other works. He was born in Woodford, Essex, and began writing poetry at a young age. He published his first book of poetry, "The Unknown Eros," in 1877, which was followed by "Amours de Voyage" in 1858 and "The Victories of Love" in 1862. In 1854, he married Emily Augusta Andrews, who would become the inspiration for his most famous work, "The Angel in the House." This poem, which was published in several parts between 1854 and 1856, is a celebration of domesticity and the ideal of the perfect wife and mother. Patmore continued to write poetry throughout his life, but "The Angel in the House" remains his most enduring and popular work. He died in London in 1896.
