Marston, Philip Botjrke

Marston, Philip Botjrke (1850-87), son of the foregoing, when quite young became blind, and to this misfortune was added the sorrow caused by the death of his betrothed. These things gave his poetry a mournful tone. Song Tide (1870), All in All (1875), and Wind Voices, are the titles given to his volumes of poems. Philip Marston was the friend of Rossetti and Mr. Swinburne, who had a high estimate of his powers.
