Henry Timrod

a.k.a. Aglaus *

Author Code: AHTR

Born: Dec. 8, 1828 - Charleston, South Carolina, USA

Died: Oct. 7, 1867 - Columbia, South Carolina, USA

Educated at Franklin College (now the University of Georgia), Timrod left school before graduating due to ill health. He then joined a law firm for a time before deciding to write full-time. He had already begun submitting poetry to the Southern Literary Messenger in 1848 and had been praised for his abilities. In 1856, he took a position as a teacher and continued to contribute poetry. In his teaching position at the plantation of Colonel William Henry Cannon, he met his future wife, Katie Godwin. He published his first book in 1860, a small book of poetry that was not successful. He returned to Charleston after the outbreak of the Civil War and became the poetic voice of the Confederacy. He enlisted in the army, but his health precluded military service. He then settled in Columbia, South Carolina and joined the newspaper The South Carolinian as an associate editor. Sherman's occupation in 1865 resulted in the destruction of the newspaper office. Timrod went into hiding and later became a correspondent for the short-lived newspaper The Carolinian. In 1867, Timrod finally succumbed to tuberculosis. His close friend, and fellow poet, Paul Hayne, ensured that Timrod's poems were published; Poems (1873). His other works include Katie (1884 Posthumous) and Complete Poems (1899 Posthumous).
