Biographical history

Robert Calverley Trevelyan was a poet and translator who was associated with the Bloomsbury Group. He was born in Weybridge, the son of Sir George Trevelyan, 2nd Baronet; his brother was the historian G.M. Trevelyan. At Trinity College, Cambridge, (1891-1895), he studied classics and law, but his ambition was to be a poet, and he went on to author many books, including translations, from 1898 to 1950. He was married to the Dutch musician Elizabeth van der Hoeven.
