Ernest de Sélincourt
Ernest de Sélincourt (1870–1943) was a British literary scholar and critic. He is best known as an editor of William Wordsworth and Dorothy Wordsworth. He was Oxford Professor of Poetry from 1928 to 1933 and a Fellow of University College, Oxford. After a distinguished career at Oxford, he became Professor of English at Birmingham.
