Biographical or Historical Information
Le Gallienne sent some of his poems to Oliver Wendell Holmes, who encouraged him to pursue a literary career. Le Gallienne then moved to London, where he met such notable literary figures as George Meredith, Swinburne and Oscar Wilde. He became a publisher's reader for the Bodley Head and principal reviewer for the London Star. Developing a wide acquaintance in the literary circles of the 1890s, Le Gallienne frequented many parties and belonged to the well-known Rhymers' Club (along with W. B. Yeats, Ernest Dowson, Arthur Symons and others). During this period, he produced a wide range of literary work, including poems, essays and novels.
In 1901, Le Gallienne moved to the United States and continued to make his living by writing a variety of essays, fiction, translations and anthologies. He had a special interest in Asian literature, and wrote on many subjects, both literary and otherwise. The last part of Le Gallienne's life was spent mainly in France and was devoted to essays and books about Paris.
