Biography of Eunice Tietjens

American poet, novelist, journalist, children's author, lecturer, and editor.

Eunice Tietjens was born Eunice Strong Hammond in Chicago in 1884, and she died in Chicago in 1944. Mainly educated in Europe, all her life she was a constant traveler and lived for short periods of time in Florida, New York, Japan, China, the South Seas and Tunisia. She married the composer Paul Tietjens in 1904, divorced him in 1914 and in 1920 married Cloyd Head, playwright and theatrical director. She had two children, Janet T. Hart and Marshall Head.

Tietjens was a World War I correspondent for the Chicago Daily News in France, 1917-1918, and for more than twenty-five years she was on the staff of Harriet Monroe's publication, Poetry: A Magazine of Verse. Her published work is varied, consisting of four volumes of poetry, a novel, numerous articles, travel books, books for children, an anthology of Oriental poetry, translations from Spanish and French literature, and her memoirs entitled The World at My Shoulder, 1938.

Although Eunice Tietjens' role as a Chicago literary figure is interesting, her reputation rests less on her own work and more on the relationships she maintained and the influence she had as friend, critic and editor of some important writers of the early twentieth-century, including Edgar Lee Masters and Sara Teasdale.
