Poetry and Creative Writing

Cover, Hoosier College Verse, 1939

Literary magazines featuring poetry and prose were prominent among college campuses across the state during wartime and the time leading up to the war. This rare volume contains a modest selection of the work being produced by college-aged Hoosier poets.

"Weep not-- he lies in quiet rest
Under the cool sweet rain;
Eternity has wrapped around him
In its still, earthen chain."
- Excerpt from Song for Grief,
    By Noreen Chambers
    (Indiana University)
How each star dances
And glitters with too bright eyes,
Eyes made bright
By the wine of night!"
-Excerpt from Carousal,
