Thomas Bailey Aldrich
Thomas Bailey Aldrich ( November 11, 1836 - March 19, 1907) was an American writer, poet, critic and editor. He is known for his lengthy edition of The Atlantic Monthly, during which he published writers, including Charles W. Chesnt. He was also known for his semi-autobiographical book, The Story of a Bad Boy, in which there was a subgenre of the book of a bad boy in 19th-century American literature, and for his poetry, which included Unguarded Gate. Thomas Bailey Aldrich was born on November 11, 1836 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. When Aldrich was a child, his father moved to New Orleans. After 10 years, Aldrich was sent back to Portsmouth to prepare for college. This period of his life is partially described in his semi-autobiographical novel The Story of a Bad Boy (1870), in which Tom Bailey is a minor hero.
