William Sharp (1855 – 1905) was a Scottish writer of poetry and literary biography, who from 1893 wrote also as Fiona Macleod, a pseudonym kept almost secret during his lifetime. Sharp was a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. This detailed biography was compiled by Sharp's wife (and cousin), Elizabeth. William Sharp also wrote numerous novels, many with occult leanings, as Fiona Macleod, and also wrote many works of literary criticism under his real name. Sharp had a complex and ambivalent relationship with fellow Golden Dawn member W. B. Yeats during the 1890s, as a central tension in the Celtic Revival. Yeats initially found Macleod acceptable and Sharp not, and later fathomed their identity. Sharp found the dual personality an increasing strain.
