Biographical or historical data
Joaquin Miller, pseudonym of Cincinnatus Hiner (or Heine) Miller (born Sept. 8, 1837, near Liberty, Indiana died Feb. 17, 1913, Oakland, California) American poet and journalist whose best work conveys a sense of the majesty and excitement of the Old West. His best-known poem is 'Columbus' with its refrain, 'On, sail on!' once familiar to millions of American schoolchildren.Miller went west with his family and led a picaresque early life in California among miners, gamblers, and Indians. He attended Columbia College (Eugene, Ore.) briefly in 1858-59 and was admitted to the Oregon bar in 1860. Between 1862 and 1866 he owned a pony express and a newspaper (the Eugene Democratic Register) and was a county judge in Canyon City, Ore. For the Register he wrote an article defending the Mexican brigand Joaquin Murietta, whose given name he later used as a pseudonym. His first books of poems, Specimens (1868) and Joaquin et al. (1869), attracted little attention.In 1870 he traveled to England, where his exotic manners and flamboyant western costume made him a great favourite with the literati. Pacific Poems (1871) was privately printed there. Songs of the Sierras (1871), upon which his reputation mainly rests, was loudly acclaimed in England, while generally derided in the United States for its excessive romanticism. His other books of poetry included Songs of the Sunlands (1873), The Ship in the Desert (1875), The Baroness of New York (1877), Songs of Italy (1878), Memorie and Rime (1884), and the Complete Poetical Works (1897).Source: "Joaquin Miller, American Writer."
