A FORCE OF POETS, Episode 01 - Helen Hunt Jackson


In this episode, we recall love and marriage in the month of May, the harvests of June, and the grogginess of early morning.


It's the start of four weeks of poets here on The 3:57 by William E. Spear.


Brief biography on Helen Hunt Jackson:


Jackson was born in Amherst, Massachusetts in 1830. She published five collections of poetry, including VERSES in 1870 and EASTER BELLS in 1884, as well as children’s literature and travel books. Her works were also released under the pseudonyms “H.H.,” “Rip van Winkle,” or “Saxe Holm.”


In 1881, two years after hearing a speech by Chief Standing Bear, Jackson wrote A CENTURY OF DISHONOR, an exposé of crimes against Native Americans, which led to the founding of the Indian Rights Association.

Our episode focuses on three poems. The first is MAY, the second is JUNE, and the last is MORN as in the early part of the day.
