Margaret Widdemer, a poet and novelist was born in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, in 1884 and grew up in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Received several prizes. She won the Pulitzer Prize (known then as the Columbia University Prize) in 1919 for her collection The Old Road to Paradise. In her poems, Widdemer addresses the social problems of her day—such as child labor—and pays strict attention to traditional poetic forms. “But when your heart is tired and dumb, your soul has need of ease, There’s none like the quiet folk who wait in libraries– The counselors who never change, the friends who never go, The old books, the dear books that understand and know!”
