F. T. Prince

Frank Templeton Prince (September 13 1912August 7 2003) was a British poet and academic, known generally for the 1942 poem "Soldiers Bathing" which has been frequently included in anthologies.He was born in Kimberley, South Africa. His father Henry (Harry) Prince (formerly Prinz) was from the East End of London, of Dutch-Jewish descent, while his mother was Scottish. He was educated at the Christian Brothers College there, then Balliol College, Oxford. He had a visiting position at Princeton University. In World War II he was involved in intelligence work.

He married in 1943, and took an academic position after the war at the University of Southampton, where he settled. In the mid-1970s, he taught at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica.

In work such as the "Afterword on Rupert Brooke" his interest in the metrical ideas of Robert Bridges is evident.

F. T. Prince died in Southampton in 2003.
