Robert Pollok

Pollok, Robert (1789–1827). Poet, born in Refrewshire, studied for the ministry of one of the Scottish Dissenting communions. After leaving the University of Glasgow he published anonymously Tales of the Covenanters, and in 1827, the year of his untimely death from consumption, appeared his poem, The Course of Time, which contains some fine passages, and occasionally faintly recalls Milton and Young. The poem went through many ed. in Britain and America. He died at Shirley, near Southampton, whither he had gone in search of health.
