Harriet Monroe

Author Code: AHMR

Born: Dec. 23, 1860 - Chicago, Illinois, USA

Died: Sep. 26, 1936 - Arequipa, Peru

Already well-read by the time she entered Visitation Academy, Monroe graduated in 1879 and attempted to earn a living writing poetry. She joined the Chicago Tribune as a freelance journalist and after years of rejection and poverty, she gained a wide audience with the publication of Columbian Ode, a poem written for the World's Columbian Exposition in 1892. The New York World published the poem without authorisation and Monroe won a $5000 settlement in a subsequent court case. In 1912, she founded Poetry magazine and became a leader in championing new poetry. She edited the magazine until her death in 1936 by a cerebral haemorrhage caused by the high altitude on her way to Macchu Picchu. Her other works include Valeria and Other Poems (1892), John Wellborn Root (1896), The Passing Show (1903), Dance of the Seasons (1908), You and I - Poems (1914), Poets and Their Art (1926) and her autobiography A Poet's Life (1938 Posthumous).
