Paul Hamilton Hayne

Hayne, Paul Hamilton, 1830–86, American poet, b. Charleston, S.C., grad. Charleston College. Considered the last of the Southern literary cavaliers, he wrote a book of nature poetry (1855) and edited Russel's Magazine (1857–60). He was left impoverished by the Civil War and took refuge on a small estate in Georgia. There he wrote Legends and Lyrics (1872), a collection of delicate, charming poems that is considered his most mature work.
