Emile Verhaeren Poems

Published by Steven

Emile VerhaerenNoted for helping to create and establish the Symbolist Movement at the turn of the 20th Century, Emile Verhaeren was born in 1855 in the Belgian town of Sint-Amands. His parents were reasonably wealthy and he grew up speaking French despite their Flemish roots. When he was ready for school, his father sent the young Emile to a very strict Jesuit College after which he went on to study law at the university in Leuven.

It was about this time that Verhaeren began to write poetry and met a number of other students who aspired to literary heights in the future. In 1881 he qualified in the legal profession and went to work for well-known criminal lawyer, Edmond Picard, who also had pretensions of being a writer and was active on the local artistic scene.

Whilst Verhaeren worked a couple of criminal cases …

Ernest Lawrence Thayer Poems

Published by Steven

Ernest ThayerBorn in Massachusetts in 1863, Ernest Lawrence Thayer was an American poet and writer who is solely remembered for one famous comic verse and the habit he had of signing his poems ‘Phin’. Thayer was born into a fairly wealthy family and had a good education that led him to attend Harvard University in 1885 where he was responsible for editing a couple of magazines including the Lampoon.

As a member of the Hasty Pudding Club, the theatrical society of Harvard, Thayer came into contact with a wide range of the country’s rich and soon to be powerful people. One of these was William Randolph Hearst who came from one of the most prominent families in the US at the time. It was a stroke of luck that would see one of Thayer’s verses become almost a national institution.

The story went that …

Fenton Johnson Poems

Published by Steven

Fenton JohnsonAn influence on such movements as the Harlem Renaissance, Fenton Johnson was a poet and short story writer who was born in Chicago in 1888. His father was a porter for the railways and the Johnsons were considered well-off for an African American family at the time and even owned their house on State Street. Fenton Johnson had no real pretensions to be a writer in his youth and was more inclined to a career as a preacher as he made his way through secondary school in Chicago.

In 1908 Johnson gained a place at Northwestern University but later moved to the University of Chicago where he graduated a few years later. After he left, Johnson began work as a postal worker but quickly found a place as a teacher at a black school in Louisville which he maintained until 1911 when …

Friedrich von Schiller Poems

Published by Steven

Friedrich SchillerPoet Friedrich von Schiller was born in Marbach, Württemberg, Germany, in 1759, and is most notable for his involvement in the later years of his life with the Weimarer Klassic cultural movement along with his friend Johann Wolfgang Goethe. Whilst he was brought up with his mother and four sisters, the family moved to Lorch when Schiller’s father returned from military service and took up the post of army recruiting officer there.

Schiller was initially a reluctant student but when he came under the wing of Pastor Moser he began to learn Greek and Latin and became acquainted with the Classics. When the family moved to Ludwigsburg, Schiller joined the military academy there and began to study medicine, eventually becoming a regimental surgeon like his father, a career he was never comfortable.

Whilst studying he wrote his first play The Robbers which took …

Edmund Waller Poems

Published by Steven

Edmund WallerOften considered as the forefather of the heroic couplet, Edmund Waller was a politician and poet who was born in Buckinghamshire in 1606. After living for a while in Amersham, the Waller family moved to Beaconsfield where the young Edmund was educated by a series of, what he would later describe as, dull tutors. When he was 10 years old, his father died and Waller was sent to Eton by his mother and then went on to continue his education Cambridge.

Although he left Cambridge without a degree he successfully undertook training for the bar at Lincoln’s Inn, completing his studies in 1622. At the age of 21 he inherited his father’s estate and a subsequent income of over £3,000 a year. Twelve months before, Waller had become MP for Chipping Wycombe and two years after that he succeeded in being elected …
