Poet and Literary Scholar
Sir William Empson was born in Yorkshire in 1906 and educated at Winchester School and Cambridge University, where he studied both mathematics and literature. While at university Empson began work on his dissertation that was later published as his first, and perhaps most influential, critical work, Seven Types of Ambiguity (1930). Other critical volumes include Some Versions of Pastoral (1935), The Structure of Complex Words (1951) and Milton's God (1961).

EMPSON, SIR RICHARD (d. 1510), minister of Henry VII., king of England, was a son of Peter Empson, an influential inhabitant of Towcester. Educated as a lawyer he soon attained considerable success in his profession, and in 1491 was one of the members of parliament for Northamptonshire and speaker of the House of Commons. Early in the reign of Henry VII. he became associated with Edmund Dudley (qv.) in carrying out the king's rigorous and arbitrary system of taxation, and in consequence he became very unpopular.
