Arthur Hugh Clough was the son of a Liverpool cotton merchant who moved the family to South Carolina when he was four. He returned to England to attend Rugby School under Thomas Arnold and then Balliol College, Oxford. At Oxford the influence of W.G. Ward and Newman destroyed his Anglican faith without providing a substitute.

He was elected to a Fellowship at Oriel College in 1842, but resigned his tutorship on religious grounds in 1849 and spent the subsequent year in Paris and then Rome.

After two years as head of University Hall in London he visited the USA, returning to an examinership in the Education Office. He also worked for his relation Florence Nightingale.

He died of a fever and is buried in Florence.

“Ah yet, when all is thought and said,
The heart still overrules the head;
Still what we hope we must believe,
And what is given us receive;

Must still believe, for still we hope
That in a world of larger scope,
What here is faithfully begun
Will be completed, not undone.

My child, we still must think, when we
That ampler life together see,
Some true result will yet appear
Of what we are, together, here.”
Arthur Hugh Clough, The Poems of Arthur Hugh Clough

“For while the tired waves, vainly breaking,
Seem here no painful inch to gain,
Far back, through creeks and inlets making,
Comes silent, flooding in, the main.

And not by eastern windows only,
When daylight comes, comes in the light;
In front the sun climbs slow, how slowly!
But westward, look, the land is bright!”
Arthur Hugh Clough, Say not the Struggle Naught Availeth

“O let me love my love unto myself alone,
And know my knowledge to the world unknown,
No witness to the vision call,
Beholding, unbeheld of all...”
Arthur Hugh Clough
