Mr. Mackenzie Bell

Mr. Henry Thomas Mackenzie Bell died on Saturday at his home in Bayswater in his seventy-fifth year. Educated privately, Mackenzie Bell lived much abroad, and was chiefly known as a poet and critic. He published a biographical and critical study of Christina Rosetti, also a study of Swinburne. His poems comprise chiefly "Poetical Pictures of the great War" in four series, together with "Spring's Immortality" and "Pictures of Travel and Other Poems." He was also a keen Liberal Imperialist. He was an original member of W. E. Forster's Imperial Federation Committee, and lectured for the Social and Political Education League. On four occasions he contested St. George's Hanover-square, as a Liberal. He had been a member of the Athenaeum for many years.
