Flecker, James Elroy,

1884–1915, English poet and playwright. From 1910–13 he served in the diplomatic corps. A preoccupation with the exotic is revealed in his verse, particularly in The Golden Journey to Samarkand (1913). His two plays, Hassan (pub. 1922) and Don Juan (pub. 1925), were written in verse. In 1923–24, Hassan was lavishly and successfully produced in London.
