Biographies of the featured poets Li Po (Japanese Rihaku) (701-762) Chinese poet, one of the greatest figures of Chinese literature. Li Po (or Li Bai) was born into the minor nobility in what is now Sichuan (Szechwan) Province. After an apprenticeship with a Daoist hermit and a time of wandering, he lived briefly as a poet at the Tang dynasty court in Changan but left as the result of intrigue. Then he returned to a life of Daoist study and carefree reflective wandering, writing poems and enjoying nature and the pleasures of wine, supplied free by the emperor's orders. According to legend, Li Po was drowned while drunkenly leaning from a boat to embrace the Moon's reflection on the water. Poem: "Lament of the Frontier Guard" John Donne (1572 -1631) A noted english poet and essayist, Donne sailed with the Earl of Essex and Sir Walter Raleigh in the naval expeditions against Cadiz in August 1596, where the inspiration for his poem "The Burnt Ship" occurred. Walt Whitman (1819-1892) During the Civil War Whitman ministered to wounded soldiers in Union army hospitals in Washington, D.C. He remained there, working as a government clerk, until 1873, when he suffered a stroke that left him partially paralysed. Poem: "Come up from the fields, Father"

Seamus Justin Heaney
Nationality Irish
Career: Poet, critic, essayist, translator and editor Childhood in Ulster informs poetry Born April 13, 1939, Heaney's childhood in a rural area near Ulster, Northern Ireland, informs much of his poetry, including his first volume, Death of a Naturalist (1966), for which he won immediate popular and critical success. In most of these poems, Heaney describes a young man's responses to beautiful and threatening aspects of nature. In "Digging," the poem that opens this volume, he evokes the rural landscape where he was raised and comments on the care and skill with which his father and ancestors farmed the land. Heaney announces that as a poet he will metaphorically "dig" with his pen. In many of the poems in his next volume, Door into the Dark (1969), he probes beneath the surface of things to search for hidden meaning. Along with pastoral poems, Heaney focuses on rural laborers and the craftsmanship they display in their work. Heaney left Northern Ireland when the "troubles" resumed in 1969. After teaching in the United States, he settled with his family in the Republic of Ireland. The poems in

Emily Dickinson
Read her poem "Because I Could Not Stop for Death"
Variant Name(s): Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (full name)
Nationality: American
Career: Poet Atlantic Monthly, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, a man with whom Dickinson corresponded for many years about her poetry. Higginson, who professed to know exactly what made a good poem, managed to pass over 102 of the poems Dickinson sent to him over the course of their correspondence. He advised the Amherst poet to study her craft further, but never offered to publish one of the poems she sent to him. The Life of Emily Dickinson, College English A Young Lady of Amherst Some people are so connected with a place that it has become joined with their name. Henry David Thoreau and Walden Pond are one forever in literary history; the displaced Englishman, Raymond Chandler, had his Los Angeles. So it is for Emily Dickinson and Amherst, Massachusetts. Born December 10, 1830, she was the second of three children of Edward and Emily Dickinson. Named after her mother, young Emily grew up in the small farming town of Amherst, though her family was, as Ruth Miller noted in Dictionary of Literary Biography
