The Ghost-Ship One of the best-loved ghost stories in English literature By Richard Middleton Richard Barham Middleton (28 October 1882 – 1 December 1911) was a British poet and author, who is remembered mostly for his short ghost stories, in particular The Ghost Ship. After education at Cranbrook School, Kent, he worked in London for the Royal Exchange Assurance Corporation bank, as a clerk, from 1901 to 1907. Unhappy in this, he affected a Bohemian life at night; he is mentioned, in disguised terms, in Arthur Ransome's Bohemia in London. He moved out of his parents' house and into rooms in Blackfriars and joined the club The New Bohemians where he acquired literary contacts who included Arthur Machen, Louis McQuilland (1880-1946), Christopher Wilson and others. He became an editor at Vanity Fair under Edgar Jepson where he confided to Frank Harris, who was also editing at the magazine at the time, that what he would really wanted to do was make a living as a poet. Shortly thereafter, Harris published Middleton's poem "The Bathing Boy".
