John B. Tabb

Catholic convert, priest, and great poet John Banister Tabb died 99 years ago today, November 19, 1909. Google Books has two biographical sketches:

A dozen years ago, I posted a few of Father Tabb's later poems.

On The Blog from the Core, I have included some of Father Tabb's poetry in the Sunday Poetry Series: Search.

P.S. The poet's middle name is correctly spelled "Banister" (with one "n", not two.)
