copyvio?[edit]

This article is the same as this page: http://courses.wcupa.edu/fletcher/henley/bio.htm

from Robert Fletcher's site. There is no indication here that this was used with permission. Does anyone know about this?

Back in March, someone asked about a copyright violation. Do we have the rights to use this material? The original website, http://courses.wcupa.edu/fletcher/henley/bio.htm , still exists. Danny

Foot Amputation[edit]

I've heard that William Ernest Henley had a foot amputated; this is not mentioned anywhere in the article.

Yes. 'Henley amputation' gives a number of good Google hits. It was as a result of TB, and can be added. Charles Matthews 08:21, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Henley was the inspiration for Stevenson's Long John Silver. This should be added...

Omission[edit]

Something has obviously been cut off at the beginning of the second paragraph.

"Consumption of the spine" is archaeic slang for syphilis, (consumption being TB) so i wonder if that's what his "tuberculosis of the bone" is referring to syphilis?


Is it worth including that the school that he attended as a child, The Crypt School Gloucester, has one of its four school houses named after him? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.239.226.186 (talk) 23:12, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
