        • found: Wikipedia, April 3, 2014 (Edward FitzGerald; born 31 March 1809, Bredfield House, Bredfield, Woodbridge, Suffolk; died 14 June 1883 in Merton, Norfolk; English poet and writer, best known as the poet of the first and most famous English translation of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. The writing of his name as both FitzGerald and Fitzgerald is seen. The use here of FitzGerald conforms with that of his own publications, anthologies such as Quiller-Couch's Oxford Book of English Verse, and most reference books up until about the 1960s.) {}
