War Poems by Alan Seeger

alan seeger, war poet, poemsAlan Seeger was born in New York, and lived on Staten Island for the first ten years of his life. In 1900 his family moved over to Mexico for a couple of years – these Latin American experiences engrained their way into some of his later poetry.

In 1906 Seeger was accepted into Harvard and graduated in 1910 where he moved to Greenwich Village for two years, writing poetry and living as a young carefree Bohemian.

A little later Seeger lived his Bohemian lifestyle in the Latin Quarter of Paris, France, until joining the French Foreign Legion (see photograph on the right, where Seeger wears the French apparel) on August 24th, 1914 (the U.S. did not enter the war until 1917). He was eventually killed at Belloy-en-Santerre at a young age.
