Quick Reference

(1798–1876) Classicist, physician, and poet, born in Dublin and educated at Trinity College, Dublin, who spent more than twenty years from 1846 travelling on foot through Europe to collate manuscripts of the Aeneid and meet fellow Virgil scholars. The opening part of the first volume of his Aeneidea appeared in 1873, but the rest of this ground-breaking five-volume work of textual analysis, exegesis, and interpretation remained unpublished until after his death. Henry is chiefly remembered today for his dry, resolutely atheistical poetry, a selection of which was edited by Christopher Ricks in 2002. See, Scholar and Sceptic (1985).
