What about William Topaz McGonagall. He thought himself to be a poet of some genius, and I have to say that he was probably right, though not in the way he thought.

For anyone not familiar with his work I would recommend the selection at http://www.taynet.co.uk/users/mcgon/

Mike Champion scripsit:

But not because he was a fool.  I didn't use this quote because I think

The fate of fools is obscurity.
