Carbery, Ellen
TitleCarbery, Ellen
Scope and Content of FondsThis poem is but a single example of the work of Ellen Carbery. It is important not only as illustrative of her work, but also of a discontinued practice of having poems printed on card stock, with ornate decoration; particularly poems which commemorated particular events or people. These were given to people who may have had some connection with the event or person. Sometimes they would be for sale. - None of Carbery's original manuscripts are known to have survived. This poem, together with the poems and articles that were published in various newspapers and magazines are all that is known of her life as a writer. There is even less to document her life as a prominent St. John's business woman in the decades just before and after the turn of the 19th century. This poem should be of interest to students of literature of her period. The intrinsic value of the format should not be overlooked.
