Its a bit short for the great man - any takers on expanding it? I would, but my knowledge is extremely limited... Denis Cavanagh 11:41, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

I have added some bare facts about his life (and modified the statement about greatest lyric poet, as I would say that Thomas Hardy runs him close on lyricism, and there might even be those who would say that Hardy is better). The article still needs a proper expansion. --Martin Wyatt (talk) 19:00, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
