Celia Thaxter

a.k.a. Celia (nee) Laighton Thaxter

Author Code: ACLT

Born: Jun. 29, 1835 - Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA

Died: Aug. 25, 1894 - Appledore Island, Maine, USA

The daughter of a lighthouse keeper on the Isle of Shoals off the coast of New Hampshire, Celia married Levi Thaxter when she was only 16 and the couple moved to Massachusetts. After ten years, she managed to convince Thaxter to return to the islands in 1864. She published her first poem, Landlocked, in the Atlantic Monthly in 1861. The following year Sandpiper was published to much acclaim. She contributed essays to the Atlantic for many years and these were collected into Among the Isles of Shoals (1872), an extremely popular work, which also stimulated the tourist interest in the island. Appledore House, the hotel begun by her father, became a literary gathering place, attracting the likes of Whittier, Howells, Lowell, Thoreau and many others. Thaxter's husband died in 1884. She became an active naturalist and fought for the preservation of birds. She died suddenly on her beloved Appledore Island. Thaxter was one of America's favorite authors of the 19th century. Her other works include Poems (1872), Driftwood (1879), Idylls and Pastorals (1886) and An Island Garden (1894).
