This book, "Music and poetry," by Sidney Lanier, is a replication of a book originally published before 1898. It has been restored by human beings, page by page, so that you may enjoy it in a form as close to the original as possible. As a poet he sometimes, though not exclusively, used dialects. Many of his poems are written in heightened, but often archaic, American English. He became a flautist and sold poems to publications.

Sidney Lanier was born in Macon, Georgia. He read widely in his father’s library before entering Oglethorpe College, where he began to seriously study both music (he was an amateur flautist) and poetry. In 1860, Lanier joined the Confederate Army. The son of a lawyer, Lanier was raised in the traditions of the Old South. He served with the Macon Volunteers until he was captured and imprisoned by the Union Army. While being held in prison, Lanier contracted tuberculosis. The disease eventually killed him at age 39.

Sidney Clopton Lanier (February 3, 1842 – September 7, 1881) was an American musician, poet and author

Sidney Clopton Lanier (February 3, 1842 – September 7, 1881) was an American musician, poet and author. He served in the Confederate States Army as a private, worked on a blockade-running ship for which he was imprisoned (resulting in his catching tuberculosis), taught, worked at a hotel where he gave musical performances, was a church organist, and worked as a lawyer.

Lanier's poetry is marked by its melodic verse and extravagant conceits. Among his best-known poems are "Corn," and "The Marshes of Glyn.

Sidney Lanier (February 3, 1842 – September 7, 1881) was an American musician and poet. Sydney Lanier was born February 3, 1842, in Macon, Georgia, to parents Robert Sampson Lanier and Mary Jane Ander. In Lanier's hands, the logaoedic dactylic meter led to a free-form, almost prose-like style of poetry that was greatly admired by Longfellow, Bayard Taylor, Charlotte Cushman, and other leading poets and critics of the day. A similar poetical meter was independently developed by Gerard Manley Hopkins at about the same time (there is no evidence that they knew each other or that either of them had read any of the other's works).

Poems by Sidney Lanier. Regional affection for Georgia's first "national" poet tends on occasion to reduce Sidney Lanier's Civil War-torn career to a tragic metaphor for the antebellum South. Generations of Georgians probably know Lanier best for his poems set in the natural surroundings of the state, such as The Marshes of Glynn and Song of the Chattahoochee. Ultimately, these much-anthologized gems of Lanier's fitful and tragically short poetic career make up only part of an intense literary life.
