Writer and advocate of libertarian beliefs; after a brief career at Cambridge, worked as a University Extension lecturer in the north of England; settled at Millthorpe, Derbyshire (1883), where he combined his literary work with the simple life of market gardening and sandal-making. Influenced by Whitman and Socialism, Carpenter's works include Towards Democracy (1883–1902), England's Ideal (1885), and Civilisation, its Cause and Cure (1889).
