About this Item

Schoolchildren nationwide used to be required to memorize this poet's social protest piece, "The Man with the Hoe," which was inspired by Millet's painting of the same name. Printed DS, 1p, 8½" X 14", n.p. [Staten Island, NY], n.d. [post-1924]. Near fine. Broadside printing of this most reknowned poem, signed big and bold at the lower margin "Your friend, Edwin Markham: / Staten Island, N.Y." Bright and attractive. "Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans / Upon his hoe and gazes on the ground," Markham begins. "The emptiness of ages in his face, / And on his back the burden of the world." -- still a powerful and moving piece despite changes in poetry style and diction. Accompanied by a fine heavy stock 6¼" X 5" color reproduction of Millet's namesake painting. Bookseller Inventory # 27639
