Edward FitzGerald (full name Edward Marlborough FitzGerald) (March 31, 1809–June 14, 1883) was an English writer, best known as the poet of the first and most famous English translation of Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám.
He was born Edward Purcell, at Bredfield House in Suffolk. His father, John Purcell, assumed in 1818 the name and arms of his wife's family, the FitzGeralds. From 1816 the family lived at St Germain and at Paris, but in 1821 Edward was sent to school at Bury St Edmunds. In 1826 he went to Trinity College, Cambridge, where he joined the Cambridge Apostles. He became acquainted with William Makepeace Thackeray and William Hepworth Thompson. His friendship with Alfred Tennyson, also an Apostle, began in about 1835. In 1830 FitzGerald left for Paris, but in 1831 was living in a farm-house on the battlefield of Naseby. For more on Edward FitzGerald, click here.
