      Edward James Mortimer Collins 29 June 1827 28 July 1876 was an English poet and novelist.He was born at Plymouth, where his father, Francis Collins, was a solicitor He was educated at a private school, and after some years spent as mathematical master at Elizabeth College, Guernsey, he relocated to London In London, Collins devoted himself to journalism in the Conservative Party interest, writing largely for periodicals He also wrote occasional and humorous verse, and several novels Soon after his second marriage in 1868, he settled at Knowl Hill, Berkshire and from this time he rarely left his home for a day and published several novels.In 1855, he published his Idyls and Rhymes and in 1865 his first story, Who is the Heir was published A second volume of lyrics, The Inn of Strange Meetings, was issued in 1871 and in 1872 he produced his longest and best sustained poem, The British Birds, a communication from the Ghost of Aristophanes He also wrote several novels, including Sweet Anne Page 1868 , Two Plunges for a Pearl 1872 , Miranda 1873 , Mr Carrington 1873 under the name of R.T Cotton , and A Fight with Fortune 1876 His three volume novel Transmigration 1873 is a fantasy of multiple incarnations of which the middle one is set on a utopian Mars Some of his lyrics, with their light grace, their sparkling wit and their airy philosophy , were argued by the 1911 Encyclop dia Britannica to be equal to anything of their kind in modern English.Collins is credited by the New English Dictionary with introducing the word psithurism to the English language derived from the Ancient Greek for whisper, it was applied specifically to the whispering of the wind This was noted inaccurately by The Guardian newspaper in an editorial of 30 September 1909 reprinted on 30 September 2006 but not available online.
