1675, Sep 21742, Jul 19
an English poet. Somervile was the eldest son of a country gentleman, and was born at Edstone, in the parish of Warren, Warwickshire in 1677. He was educated at Winchester College and at New College, Oxford, where he studied law. While in school he did not show any hint of great knowledge of literature or seem to have a knack for writing poetry. His love of poetry did not come until he was of middle age. While he lived on the estate left to him by his father in 1705, he devoted himself to field sports, which supplied the subjects of his best-known poems.
