Poems of passion by Ella Wheeler Wilcox( Book )
107 editions published between 1883 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 532 libraries worldwide
Born on November 5th 1850 in Johnstown, Wisconsin, Ella Wheeler was the youngest of four children. She began to write as a child and by the time she graduated was already well known as a poet throughout Wisconsin. Regarded more as a popular poet than a literary poet her most famous work 'Solitude' reflects on a train journey she made where giving comfort to a distressed fellow traveller she wrote how the others grief imposed itself for a time on her 'Laugh and the world laughs with you, Weep and you weep alone'. It was published in 1883 and was immensely popular. The following year, 1884, she married Robert Wilcox. They lived for a time in New York before moving to Connecticut. Their only child, a son, died shortly after birth. Here we publish one of her many poetry books, Poems of Passion, that so endeared her to her audience.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox was one of the leading writers of her age. While she cannot be classed among the leading authors of romance, her place as a writer of artistic and heart-appealing poetry, is acknowledged. She is an author of grace and purpose and always appeals to the finer sentiments of the reading world, but as a writer of romance that appeals to the thoughtless, everyday reader, she is a failure. The reason for it is easily discerned. Her pen is always brimful of thought and feeling. Not only the mind, but the heart and every sense plays to the tune of a writer who is in advance of her time. The story of "An Ambitious Man," is exactly what would be expected from Mrs. Wilcox. The contrast of wealth and poverty, of love and hate, of sorrow and happiness, are pictured as only an artist of rare merit can paint. It is a love story, but not of the Laura Jean Libby order. This is the extended annotated edition including a very rare essay about Mrs. Wilcox, her life and her strivings
