Author: Samuel French Morse

Samuel French Morse was born in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1916, to an old New England family. He graduated from Dartmouth in 1936 and received an A.M. in English from Harvard in 1938 and a Ph.D. from Boston University in 1952. From 1962 until shortly before his death in 1985, he taught at Northeastern University in Boston. Throughout his life he and his wife Jane summered at Hancock Point in Maine, and his poetry is saturated with the sights, sounds, and smells of northern New England. Morse began to publish poetry in the late 1930s, and his first book, Time of Year, appeared in 1943, with a preface by Wallace Stevens. This book was followed by four additional collections, and at the time of his death he was preparing a fifth collection. He won the Emily Clark Balch and the Arthur Davison Ficke prizes for poetry.
