Emory Aaron Richardson (1886-1965) was chosen Indiana’s unofficial poet laureate in 1929. The first poem to establish him as a poet was his famous “My Alligator Grin”. “The majority of his poems are thoroughly Indianian in style, color, sentiment and outlook. Cheer, courage and perseverance is the essence of his poetry. To please, amuse and inspire is his delight in vigorous and telling utterances. His humor is always one of his best and most loving qualities.” Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 0 lbs 14 oz. Category: Poetry; Books; Humour. Signed by Author.
