Phillip Morin Freneau
Birth: Jan. 2, 1752
New York
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA
Death: Dec. 18, 1832
Matawan
Monmouth County
New Jersey, USA

Poet, Journalist. The first professional American journalist, he was a powerful propagandist and satirist for the American Revolution and for Jeffersonian democracy. He incorporated the new stirrings of European Romanticism and escaped the imitativeness and vague universality of the Hartford Wits. The key to both his success and his failure was his passionately democratic spirit combined with an inflexible temper. Buried on a lot on Poet Road in Matawan, New Jersey. His grave states "poets grave" his inscription says "Heaven lifts its everlasting portal high and bids the pure in heart behold their god." (bio by: jim parris)
