Biography

Charles Timothy Brooks (June 20, 1813 – June 14, 1883) was a noted American translator of German works, a poet, Transcendentalist and a Unitarian pastor.

Biography

Born in Salem, Massachusetts, he graduated at Harvard in 1832, then studied theology and in 1835 began to preach in Nahant, Massachusetts.
