Book cover
Allen Upward (1863-1926) was a poet, lawyer, politician and teacher. His work was included in the first anthology of Imagist poetry, Des Imagistes, which was edited by Ezra Pound and published in 1914. He was brought up as a member of the Plymouth Brethren and trained as a lawyer at the Royal University of Dublin. While living in Dublin, he wrote a pamphlet in favour of Irish Home Rule. Upward later worked for the British Foreign Office in Kenya as a judge. He wrote two books of poetry: Songs of Ziklag (1888) and Scented Leaves from a Chinese Jar (1913). He also published a translation Sayings of Confucious (1904) and a volume of autobiography, Some Personalities (1921). Upward wrote a number of now-forgotten novels: The Prince of Balkistan (1895), A Crown of Straw (1896), A Bride's Madness (1897), and The Accused Princess (1900). In 1908, Upward self-published a book which he apparently thought would be Nobel Prize material: The New Word. This book is today known as the first citation of the word "Scientology".
