Celia Thaxter

(1835 - 1894)

The poet of the Isles of Shoals lived half her life on the barren islands 10 miles off the Maine and NH coasts. Raised in a lighthouse, her rocky life story is as compelling as her writing. Her father's hotel on Appledore Island became host to many of Boston's best known artists and writers. Her 1873 memoir Among the Isles of Shoals is still a popular guide among Shoalers today. Her writing, her poetry and her painting are the topics of continual intrigue. This site is the most complete coverage of her life and work available online.
