Emma Lazarus - LIFE STORIES
 
 
8/5/1884     Emma Lazarus, Sylvia Plath, Men
On this day in 1884 the cornerstone was laid for the Statue of Liberty. Among the thousands who helped Joseph Pulitzer raise the money for construction were Whitman and Twain -- each donated manuscripts for auction -- but Emma Lazarus's poem, "The New Colossus," raised more than these literary giants. Decades later, Sylvia Plath would join the giant-killing with her "Colossus."
