Comments on: "A. E. Coppard Quotes: To be far from the madding crowd is to be mad indeed."
|Birth:||4th January, 1878|
|Death:||13th January, 1957|
Coppard was born the son of a tailor and a housemaid in Folkestone, and had little formal education. Coppard grew up in difficult, poverty stricken circumstances; he later described his childhood as "shockingly poor" and Frank O'Connor described Coppard's early life as "cruel". He left school at the age of nine to work as an errand boy for a Jewish trouser maker in Whitechapel during the period of the Jack the Ripper murders.
