John Keble (1792-1866), was an English churchman and poet. Keble attended Corpus Christi College, Oxford and was later a fellow at Oriel College, Oxford.

The success of this collection of verse was so great that nintey five editions were printed in Keble's lifetime. In 1835 Keble was appointed Vicar of Hursley where he remained for the rest of his life. Keble died in 1866.
