Summary

Events The Annus mirabilis of poetastery In the annals of poetasting, 1877 stands out as a historic year. The most startling incident in my life was the time I discovered myself to be a poet, which was in the year 1877. So wrote William Topaz McGonagall (1825 –1902) a Scottish weaver, "actor", and "poet" who would become comically renowned as one of the worst poets in the English language. Also this year Poetaster Julia A. Moore, following up on the renown of her first book of verse, The Sweet Singer of Michigan Salutes the Public of 1876, decided to appear before her public. She gave a reading and singing performance, with orchestral accompaniment, at a Grand Rapids, Michigan, opera house. Moore managed to interpret the jeering as criticism of the orchestra.
