Richard Le Gallienne

a.k.a. Richard Thomas Gallienne

Author Code: ERLG

Born: Jan. 20, 1866 - Liverpool, England

Died: Sep. 15, 1947 - Menton, France

After a brief stint at a variety of odd jobs, Gallienne turned to writing and published his first book of verse, My Ladies' Sonnets and Other Vain and Amatorious Verses, in 1887. Over the next fifteen years, Gallienne worked as a literary secretary, journalist and magazine contributor. His first novel, Quest of the Golden Girl, appeared in 1896. In 1897, he married for the second time (his first wife having died in 1894), to Julie Norgaard, a Danish journalist. The couple had a daughter, Eva Le Gallienne, who became a well-known actress. The couple divorced after only three years. In 1903, Gallienne traveled to America where he hoped to earn his fame and fortune, but his works never had the impact he thought they would have. Unfortunately, Gallienne was born a century too late; his style being romantic in an era of modernity. By 1927, he had had enough of America and moved to Paris where he lived until 1935, when he moved to Menton. He was a prolific author and many of his works are beginning to be revived. They include The Religion of a Literary Man (1893), If I Were God (1897), The Worshipper of the Image (1900), Romances of Old France (1905), Attitudes and Avowals (1910), New Poems (1910), Vanishing Roads and Other Essays (1915), Pieces of Eight (1918), The Romance of Perfume (1928) and From a Paris Garret (1936).
