R. C. Trevelyan

R. C. Trevelyan

Robert Calverl(e)y Trevelyan (1872 ? 1951) was an English poet and translator, of a traditionalist sort, and a follower of the lapidary style of Logan Pearsall Smith.

He was born in Weybridge, son of George Otto Trevelyan, and brother of the MP Charles Philips Trevelyan and the historian G. M. Trevelyan. He was at Trinity College, Cambridge from 1891 to 1895, being one of the Cambridge Apostles.

Sometimes considered a rather ineffectual person, he had a wide range of social connections: Bernard Berenson, G. E. Moore, E. M. Forster with whom and Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson he travelled to India. His pacifist principles extended to sheltering John Rodker during World War I. He was close to the Bloomsbury Group, who called him 'Bob Trevy'.

He wrote a number of verse plays; The Bridge of Dionysus (1912) was made into an opera by Sir Donald Tovey.

He married the Dutch musician Elizabeth van der Hoeven; the artist Julian Trevelyan was their son.
