诗人的传记

罗伯特·克劳福德的儿子,1868年出生在新南威尔士州的杜恩赛德,在帕拉马塔的国王学校和悉尼大学接受教育。他像他的祖先一样,在一个农场里定居下来,但没有成功,他在悉尼当了一名职员,后来又做了一家打字公司。他的一些诗歌发表在《公报》和其他期刊上,1904年,他的诗集《抒情诗》在悉尼出版。1909年在墨尔本以同样的标题出版了一个放大版。1921年,另一卷《绿叶的幸福》出版了,三年后出版了加厚版。克劳福德于1930年1月13日在悉尼的林德菲尔德突然去世。人们对克劳福德知之甚少。他身材矮小,但有诗意的精神。他很少与文学界来往,死后几年似乎就被人遗忘了。命运似乎在各方面都与他作对。 The statement that he was educated at The King's School originally appeared in the Bookfellow, and probably came direct from Crawford. If so there is no reason to doubt it, yet in the records of The King's School of his period the only R. Crawford is listed as Richard Crawford. It was also not possible to identify him positively with the Robert James G. W. Crawford who graduated B.A. at the university of Sydney in 1912, when the poet was about 44 years of age. Crawford is represented in some of the anthologies, and A. G. Stephens (q.v.) thought highly of his work. Other critics of his period have scarcely done him justice. His work has a delicate charm and, though at times one fears it will not rise above merely pretty verse, in some of his quatrains and lyrics Crawford does succeed in writing poetry of importance. Possibly, as Stephens once suggested, he may be better appreciated in the next century. (Source: http://gutenberg.net.au/dictbiog/0-dict-biogCl-Cu.html#crawford1 )
