A. E. Housman
b. 3-26-1859; Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, England
d. 4-30-1936; Cambridge

Classical scholar Alfred Edward Housman is best remembered for his cycle of sixty three poems called A Shropshire Lad.


When I was one-and-twenty
I heard a wise man say,
"Give crowns and pounds and guineas
But not your heart away;
Give pearls away and rubies
But keep your fancy free."
But I was one-and-twenty,
No use to talk to me.
When I was one-and-twenty
I heard him say again,
"The heart out of the bosom
Was never given in vain;
'Tis paid with sighs a plenty
And sold for endless rue."
And I am two-and-twenty
And oh, 'tis true, 'tis true.

Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey, was the first English poet to publish blank verse in his translation of Virgil's Aeneid. Howard and his friend Thomas Wyatt were the first English poets to write in the sonnet form that Shakespeare later used. Together, Wyatt and Surrey are known as the “Fathers of the English Sonnet.”

Your own; what would ye more of me?”

Julia Ward Howe
b. 5-27-1819; NYC, NY
d. 10-17-1910; Portsmouth, RI

Julia Ward Howe, an abolitionist, political and social activist, poet, playwright, and philosopher, is most famous for her poem set to music as the “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

One of the phrases in the Battle Hymn “grapes of wrath” was used by John Steinbeck as the title for his 1939 novel.

Julia Ward Howe quotes ~
• “Disarm, disarm. The sword of murder is not the balance of justice. Blood does not wipe out dishonor, nor violence indicate possession.”
• “I am confirmed in my division of human energies. Ambitious people climb, but faithful people build.”

William Dean Howells
b. 3-1-1837; Martinsferry, Ohio
d. 5-11-1920; Manhattan, NY

Author and literary critic William Dean Howells is best known for the Christmas story “Christmas Every Day” and the novel The Rise of Silas Lapham. Howells was also the editor of The Atlantic Monthly and Harper's Magazine.

William Dean Howells quotes ~
• “Now I know that so long as we have social inequality we shall have snobs; we shall have men who bully and truckle, and women who snub and crawl. I know that it is futile to, spurn them, or lash them for trying to get on in the world, and that the world is what it must be from the selfish motives which underlie our economic life.”
• “He who sleeps in continual noise is wakened by silence.”
• “What the American public wants in the theater is a tragedy with a happy ending.”
