    Lydia Howard Sigourney
    Born: Norwich; September 1, 1791
    Died: Hartford; June 10, 1865 Entry by James P. Walsh The nineteenth century had an insatiable appetite for mawkish poetry, and this appetite was catered to in Connecticut by Lydia Sigourney, the "Sweet Singer of Hartford." The Romantic period was intoxicated with the power of verse, and even the best poets, like Shelley or Wordsworth, often approached the edge of bathos. Lesser poets, like Mrs. Sigourney, knew no limits. She was born Lydia Huntley, the only child of a handyman for a wealthy widow in Norwich. Her father's employer took a liking to young Lydia and treated her much like a daughter. It was through this connection that she became a frequent guest of the Wadsworth family in Hartford, and the Wadsworths did much to further her literary career. In 1815, Lydia Huntley published her first collection of poems, entitled Moral Pieces . The following lines, describing the Flood, were considered especially good:

    Background note: Lydia Howard (Huntley) Sigourney, the "Sweet Singer of Hartford" was a major figure in the rise of feminized, sentimental fiction in the second quarter of the nineteenth century. Born in Norwich, Conn., as the only child of Ezekiel and Zerviah Huntley, Sigourney was educated in the common schools of Norwich and Hartford, and from 1811-1813, conducted a school in Norwich. By 1814, Sigourney was considered successful enough as an educator to establish a school of her own in Hartford, and the following year she followed up this triumph with the publication of her first book, Moral pieces, in prose and verse In June, 1819, Lydia married Charles Sigourney, a widower with three children. Contrary to Lydia's expectations, Charles' finances were not very solid, and as a result, she turned to writing to supplement the family income. Her first efforts were published anonymously because of the objections of her husband, but as her reputation began to grow, she began to show increasing confidence in her abilities and autonomy. By the early 1830s, Sigourney was a regular and highly sought after contributor to periodicals, eventually editing her own annual, the Religious Souvenir . Although she took a dim view of the average quality of American literary outlets, her popularity eventually grew so great that Louis Godey, among other magazine publishers, was willing to pay her simply to include her name on his magazine's list of editors. A highly prolific writer, Sigourney helped to shape literary tastes in early Victorian America, spawning numerous imitators. Her writing is steeped in a prim religious moralism, with a clear fascination for death, and tends to be overtly didactic, as exemplified by works such as

      Mrs. Sigourney was born in Norwich, Connecticut to Ezekiel Huntley and Zerviah Wentworth. Their only child, she was named after her father's first wife, Lydia Howard, who had died soon after marrying Ezekiel. In her autobiography Letters of Life Sigourney describes her relation to her parents, her decision to care for them, and her intent to avoid marriage because it would interfere with this relationship. I had . . . reason for avoiding serious advances. My mind was made up never to leave my parents. I felt that their absorbing love could never be repaid by the longest life-service, and that the responsibility of an only child, their sole prop and solace, would be strictly regarded by Him who readeth the heart. I had seen aged people surrounded by indifferent persons, who considered their care a burden, and could not endure the thought that my tender parents, who were without near relatives, should be thrown upon the fluctuating kindness of hirelings and strangers. To me, my father already seemed aged, though scarcely sixty; and I said, in my musing hours, Shall he, who never denied me aught, or spoke to me otherwise than in love-tones, stretch forth his hands in their weakness, "and find none to gird him"? (241).

    Lydia Howard HuntleySigourney
    When Lafayette, the French hero of the American Revolutionary War, visited the United States in the 1820s, a procession of schoolchildren with wreaths proclaiming NOUS AIMONS LA FAYETTE greeted him in the city of Hartford, Connecticut. The phrase was the refrain of a poem in his honor by Lydia Howard Huntley Sigourney. This event characterizes Sigourneys position as a writer. Her poetry, like her prose, was about public subjectshistory, slavery, missionary work, as well as current eventsor treated personal matters, especially loss and death, as experiences common to all. In contrast to a Dickinson or an Emerson, she wrote for popular consumption, her work expressed a communal ethic based on compassionate Christianity and on conservative republicanism.
    Sigourney was enormously popular. In 1848 the respected publishers Cary and Hart issued her selected poems in their series of works by American poets, the preceding volumes having been devoted to three highly regarded male writers, Bryant, Longfellow, and N. P. Willis. She was also enormously productive: at her death in 1865 she had published over fifty books. Their range attests to the variety of forms in which antebellum writers could undertake to guide the public. She wrote communitarian narratives, educational volumes, advice manuals, travel literature, temperance pieces, meditative prose, and exemplary memoirs as well as a vast and varied quantity of poetry.

    The "Sweet Singer of Hartford" for whom Sigourney Street was named, one of the first American women to succeed at a literary career. A teacher, born in Norwich, Lydia Huntley moved to Hartford at the invitation of Daniel Wadsworth to open a school for the daughters of his friends. With her marriage to Charles Sigourney in 1819 came financial stability, allowing her to give up teaching and devote herself full time to writing and publishing anonymously.. Lydia used proceeds from her writing to contribute to charitable causes including the temperance movement, peace societies, Greek war relief, and the work of missionaries at home and abroad. In Traits of the Aborigines of America (1822) she turned Indian tales into blank verse urging conversion of Native Americans to Christianity.
    When her husband's business began to fail, she sold poems and sketches to magazines. After the success of Letters to Young Ladies (1833), her most popular prose work, she abandoned anonymity despite her husband's objections. Within a year she had published eight other volumes including Poems (1834), a collection of her verse that was reprinted three times. Her popularity was so great that rival publishers competed for her work. Death and piety were her favorite subjects; her rhyming of pious truisms had a wide appeal.
