  • Mortal Refrains: The Complete Collected Poetry, Prose, and Songs of Julia A. Moore, the Sweet Singer of Michigan By Julia A. Moore Thomas J. Riedlinger, In the late 1870s, this gifted writer of hilarious, bad verse had a national following Mark Twain even wrote that he always carried with him a copy of Julia s first book of poems, The Sentimental Song Book 1876 I find in them the same grace and melody that attracted me when they were first published twenty years ago, and have held me in happy bonds ever since, he exIn the late 1870s, this gifted writer of hilarious, bad verse had a national following Mark Twain even wrote that he always carried with him a copy of Julia s first book of poems, The Sentimental Song Book 1876 I find in them the same grace and melody that attracted me when they were first published twenty years ago, and have held me in happy bonds ever since, he explained Twain attributed the deep charm of Julia s poems to her innocent habit of making an intentionally humorous episode pathetic and an intentionally pathetic one funny Twain immortalized Julia s style in the writings of Emmeline Grangerford, a character in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn She also influenced the writing in fact, the career of the doggerel poet Ogden Nash, who reportedly said that her example convinced him to try to become a great bad poet rather than a bad good poet The late Walter Blair, a highly respected professor of American literature at the University of Chicago, put it like this in his introduction to the last published collection of Julia s poems in 1928 If these songs as Julia called her poems were only a little closer to the conventional modes of meter, rhyme, thought, and expression they would not impress us at all Touched, however, by the magic wand of genius, the novel works of this great poet cause readers to slump down in their chairs, hold their agitated and aching sides, wipe tears from brimming eyes, and fill the air with the sound of distinctly raucous laughter Mortal Refrains is the first complete, published collection of Julia Moore s work poetry, short stories, songs including sheet music , and newspaper interviews compiled from the earliest published versions found in various public libraries, rare book collections, museums, and archives.
