Catharine Maria Sedgwick
b. 12-28-1789; Stockbridge, MA
d. 7-31-1867; Boston

Catharine Maria Sedgwick was a novelist of what is now referred to as “domestic fiction”. She was also a promoter of “Republican motherhood” or the role of women as mothers raising children to uphold the ideals of republicanism and making them the ideal citizens of the new nation as the United States emerged before, during, and after the American Revolution (c. 1760 to 1800).

Sedgwick was friends with Eliza Lee Cabot Follen and was cared for by Elizabeth “Mumbet” Freeman.

Catharine Maria Sedgwick quotes ~
• “Talent and worth are the only eternal grounds of distinction. To these the Almighty has affixed His everlasting patent of nobility. Knowledge and goodness, – these make degrees in heaven, and they must be the graduating scale of a true democracy.”
• “A company attitude is rarely anybody's best.”

Hope Leslie; Or, Early Times in the Massachusetts

Alan Seeger
b. 6-22-1888; New York
d. 7-4-1916; Belloy-en-Santerre, France

Poet Alan Seeger, described as a true romantic who wanted to live life to the fullest, joined the French Foreign Legion at the beginning of WWI. The poem, I Have A Rendezvous with Death, was published posthumously, after Seeger died in the Battle of the Somme.

I HAVE a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade,
When Spring comes back with rustling shade
And apple-blossoms fill the air—
I have a rendezvous with Death
When Spring brings back blue days and fair. ...

FYI ~ Alan Seeger was the uncle of folk singer and anti-war activist Pete Seeger.

née Georgios Seferiades

d. 9-20-1871; Athens

Giorgos Seferis was one of the most important Greek poets of the 20th century and was awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize in Literature “for his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture.”

Seferis quote ~
• “I woke with this marble head in my hands;
It exhausts my elbows and I don't know where to put it down.
It was falling into the dream as I was coming out of the dream.
So our life became one and it will be very difficult for it to separate again.”
Mythistorema (read at the opening of the 2004 Olympics in Athens)

b. 6-10-1928; Brooklyn, NY

Maurice Sendak worked as a book illustrator before he began writing and illustrating his own stories. His In the Night Kitchen regularly appears on the ALA's list of challenged and banned books.

Maurice Sendak quotes ~
• “You cannot write for children. They're much too complicated. You can only write books that are of interest to them.”
• “There must be more to life than having everything.”
• “I have been doodling with ink and watercolor on paper all my life. It's my way of stirring up my imagination to see what I find hidden in my head. I call the results dream pictures, fantasy sketches, and even brain-sharpening exercises.”
