After going to Gillespie’s School he transferred to the Royal High School and was an excellent good student, earning a place at Edinburgh University. There he studied the classics and also fine art which saw him spend a year in Paris where he had to live hand to mouth for much of the time. In 1910 he published his first collection of poetry, Songs of Night, with the financial help of his father.
Young initially intended to train in the legal profession but his brother …

Born in 1769 in Norwich, writer Ameila Opie was perhaps best known for her prose work but also published a number of individual poems and collections during her lifetime. She was brought up in a reasonably affluent family, her father was a physician and her cousin a prominent judge in the region. She was a fervently political individual at a time when this was not fashionable and inherited her radical views from her father.
Opie wrote from an early age and composed her first novel called The Dangers of Coquetry when she was just 18. The book was published anonymously in 1790 and marked the start of a distinguished writing career that would span the next 40 years. Her literary circle expanded when, in 1794, she began making regular trips from Norwich to London.
There Opie came into contact with some of the …
