Joseph Addison Poems

Published by Steven

Joseph AddisonBorn in 1672 in Wiltshire, Joseph Addison was a poet and writer who is most well-known for creating The Spectator, a magazine that had the primary aim of encouraging philosophical conversation. Addison started the magazine with his friend Richard Steele whom he had met first at Charterhouse School.

He was a talented student with a liking for the classics that took him to Oxford and Magdalen College, where he graduated in 1693. He was a reticent but popular member of the fraternity and published his first book whilst he was a student, Account of the Greatest English Poets, which earned him quite a few plaudits amongst his contemporaries. It was quickly followed by a translation of the Virgil epic Georgics.

His work attracted the attention of some wealthy benefactors including the Earl of Halifax who arranged a sizable pension for Addison that meant …

Jean de La Fontaine Poems

Published by Steven

Jean de La FontaineBorn in 1621 in Champagne, French poet Jean de La Fontaine was perhaps one of the most famous and popular writers of his time and is best known for his work Fables Choisies. His father was a forestry manager and the family would be considered today upper middle class. For most of his childhood, La Fontaine went to school in Rheims before going on to study law.

His father arranged for him to marry with a subsequent dowry but La Fontaine did not get on with his 15 year old wife, although she was considered both beautiful and intelligent. For much of the early part of their marriage, La Fontaine made every attempt to go to Paris and it is noted that he first read the work of Malherbe there and it prompted him to become a poet.

By this time …

Giovanni Boccaccio Poems

Published by Steven

Giovanni BoccaccioItalian poet Giovanni Boccaccio was born near Florence in 1313 and was one of the leading lights of the Renaissance, popular for the realism he brought to his verse compared to some of his contemporaries. His father was a merchant, and Boccaccio grew up in a privileged family, learning about and influenced by the works of Dante at an early age.

Although his talent lay in poetry, Boccaccio was sent to study business and law and spent nearly seven years at the Studium, also using the time to explore developments in science and literature. His father then introduced him to courtly society and he eventually moved to Naples to begin what he considered his true calling, writing poetry.

He had already produced a number of works such as the narrative epic Amorosa visione in 1342 but now began a period of great productivity. …

Izumi Shikibu Poems

Published by Steven

Izumi ShikibuBorn at the end of the tenth century in the Heian period, Izumi Shikibu was a Japanese poet who was from an influential family in Echizen. Shikibu was part of a group of Japanese poets who were known as the 36 Immortals, selected from the three main periods of poetry by Fujiwara no Kintō. She is well-known for her romantic and erotic verse and the numerous affairs she had during her lifetime.

When in her 20s, Shikibu married Tachibana no Michisada and moved to the provinces for a while before finding the country less agreeable than the city where she was born. She returned to her home town of Kyoto and took part in the imperial court, writing poetry and causing scandal.

Though men in this era could take multiple wives or mistresses, women were expected to devote themselves to one person, something …

Giuseppe Ungaretti Poems

Published by Steven

Giuseppe UngarettiBorn in Egypt in 1888, Giuseppe Ungaretti was one of the most influential Italian poets of the last century helping to develop the writing style that was known as Hermeticism, which grew out of the Symbolist school of thought. His first work of published poetry was produced whilst he was on the front line of World War I, fighting in the trenches.

Ungaretti spent the first part of his life near Suez where his father was helping to construct the canal before being killed in 1890. Ungaretti quickly learned about poets such as Rimbaud and Mallarme when he attended school and went onto begin a career as a literary critic and journalist, working on various papers and magazines in Italy.

In 1912, he moved to France, settled in Paris and quickly became ensconced in the literary circles of the day, getting to know …
