Henry Howard Earl of Surrey Poems

Published by Steven

Henry Howard Earl of SurreyBorn around 1516 into an aristocratic family, Henry Howard helped to found a renaissance in English poetry. Distantly related to one of the wives of Henry VIII, Catherine Howard, he was brought up in Windsor along with Henry Fitzroy with whom he had a long and enduring friendship. As a young man he grew up to be an able and brave soldier.

Howard traveled to France with Henry VIII and fought in the wars there but on his return was imprisoned several times, once for breaking the windows of houses on a London street. In 1524, when his grandfather died he had been made the Earl of Surrey and in 1532 he went to France where he stayed for a year, residing at the court of Francis I.

Along with Thomas Wyatt, Howard was the first to use the sonnet …

Edith Wharton Poems

Published by Joanne

whartonEdith Wharton rose from her American middle-class, socialite origins to become a famous writer and the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for her novel The Age of Innocence which was published in 1921. This story was later dramatized on film, the latest version being the Academy award-winning production in 1993 starring Daniel Day Lewis and Michelle Pfeiffer. Another story, The House of Mirth, also received the Hollywood treatment. She was best known for her novels and short story writing but she also had three collections of poetry published between 1878 and 1926. Additionally, Edith was probably the first “homes and gardens guru” as she wrote a number of books on the subject of innovative designs in those areas. The fact that she was already an accomplished house and garden designer would probably explain why her first published work, in 1897, …

Ho Xuan Huong Poems

Published by Steven

Ho Xuan HuongBorn in 1772 towards the back end of the Le Dynasty in Vietnam, Ho Xuan Huong is considered one of the country’s greatest poets. Brought up at a time of turmoil and conflict, little is known about her life but her work earned her the title of The Queen of Nom Poetry. Considered one of the cultural icons of Vietnam, she was popular for her irreverent style and highly erotic verse that was often shocking for the times.

What we know of Ho Xuan Huong’s life occurs against a background of national turmoil and social discord. She spent her childhood in Hanoi and began writing poetry at an early age. She was popular for her humorous style and subtle verse from which we can discern that she may have been married on two occasions (her poems mention two separate husbands). Her …

Edith Nesbit Poems

Published by Joanne

nesbitEdith Nesbit was an English writer who used the shortened “E. Nesbit” on her book covers.  She was an active socialist who transferred her political ideals into her stories that were, on the whole, for children.  She did this by moving away from  children’s story telling methods used by the likes of Lewis Carroll and Kenneth Grahame.  These authors created alternative, fantasy worlds while Nesbit preferred her young readers to remain rooted in the “real world” most of the time.  Hence the story behind one of her most famous stories, The Railway Children, which was turned into a successful film in 1970.  Although a large part of her output was children’s stories she wrote a great deal of poetry as well plus a sprinkling of novels for adults, including a few horror stories.

Edith was born in August 1858 in Kennington, South London …

Harry Crosby Poems

Published by Steven

Harry CrosbyFrom a family of rich New England bankers, Harry Crosby was born in 1898 in Boston, a poet who came to epitomize what Ernest Hemingway described as the Lost Generation. He was brought up in the exclusivity of the Back Bay area of the city and his uncle was then one of the richest men in America. He lived a privileged youth in a large mansion, delighting in throwing water bombs off the top story at visiting guests.

Crosby was sent to public school and graduated from St Mark’s in 1917 while war raged across the Atlantic in Europe. Along with the likes of Hemingway, Cowley and Crane, he longed for something more exciting and on graduating left for France to serve in the American Field Service. He experienced action as an ambulance driver in the Battle of Verdun and his vehicle …
