诗人的传记

尤金·菲尔德是一位与众不同的诗人。他是为数不多的只写儿童诗的诗人之一。这就是他的绰号“儿童诗人”的由来。1850年9月2日,在圣路易斯南百老汇634号,一切都开始了。那是尤金·菲尔德出生的地方和时间。他有一个弟弟叫罗斯威尔,比他小一岁,还有一个妹妹,出生后不久就去世了。他和他哥哥关系很好,但又很不同。尤金像他们的母亲弗朗西斯,而罗斯威尔像他们的父亲。尤金怕黑,而他哥哥什么都不怕。尤金讨厌学习,而罗斯威尔喜欢学习。 When the boys were six and five, their mother died. Mr. Field sent them to live with their cousin, Mary French, in Massachusetts until he could take care of them. While living on their cousin's farm, Eugene wrote his first poem . He was nine then, and the poem was about their cousin's dog, Fido. At the age of fifteen, Eugene was shipped off to a small private school in Massachusetts. There were only five boys in the school, and Eugene loved leading the boys in tricks against the master of the school. Eugene went on to William's College in Massachusetts. Unfortunately, his father died when he was nineteen and he dropped out after eight months. Next he went to Knox College but dropped out of college after a year. Then he went to the University of Missouri, where his brother was also attending. While there, he met Julia Comstock, who was fourteen. When Julia turned sixteen, she and Eugene married. They had eight children. Two died as babies, another died as a little boy. The remaining five grew up and had long lives. While married, Eugene had many jobs. He worked for many newspapers until the Chicago Daily News offered him a job. He wrote a humorous column called "Sharps and Flats". In 1895, Eugene Field died. He had written many poems, and had accomplished everything he had wished to accomplish. Eugene Field will be remembered mostly for being a children's poet. Some of his most famous poems are "Wynken, Blynken,and Nod"; "The Duel"; and "Little Boy Blue".
