Fitzgerald was a wealthy man who lived on his family’s estates most of his life, never following any profession or travelling far. He had many friends, and was, from all evidence, a delightful letter-writer (these are to the celebrated English actress). He is best known as a translator, most famously for “The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam” in 1859.
