Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Cabot Lodge (October 10, 1873 - August 21, 1909), nicknamed 'Bay', was an American poet of the late 19th and early-20th century, and was the son of Henry Cabot Lodge. He is a member of the Lodge Family, a prominent political family from Massachusetts. Born in Boston and named after his great-great-grandfather, the American politician George Cabot, he was the son of famed U.S. senator Henry Cabot Lodge and the father of U.S. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr.. He began studies at Harvard, and continued them in France and Berlin into his mid-twenties. In 1897, he began work as a secretary to both his father and a U.S. Senate committee in Washington. He later served successfully in the Spanish-American War as a naval cadet. On August 18, 1900, he married Mathilda Frelinghuysen Davis, with whom he had two sons and a daughter. He was a close friend of Theodore Roosevelt, who penned a fond introduction for the posthumous 1911 collection Poems and Dramas of George Cabot Lodge. He was best known for his delicate sonnets, such as the Song of the Wave, Essex, and Trumbull Stickney (Stickney was a friend and admirer), several of which were anthologized.show more
