THE POETS
Jones

Ebenezer Jones (1820 - 1860), poet, wrote a good deal of poetry of very unequal merit, but was considered a very minor poet of little contemporary importance. His only work was Studies of Sensation and Event (1843) which was so poorly received by critics and the poetic community that he didn't publish any more poetry. He was befriended by Browning and Rossetti and written about by poet John Betjeman in his piece "An Incident in the Early Life of Ebenezer Jones, Poet, 1828". His most widely appreciated poems were "To the Snow," "To Death," and "When the World is Burning."
