Emma's Poem
Print
Give me your tired, your poor Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free... Who wrote these words? And why? In 1883, Emma Lazarus, deeply moved by an influx of immigrants from Eastern Europe, wrote a sonnet that was to give voice to the Statue of Liberty. Originally a gift from France to celebrate our shared national struggles for liberty, the Statue, thanks to Emma's poem, slowly came to shape our hearts, defining us as a nation that welcomes and gives refuge to those who come to our shores.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Read about Emma, her work with immigrants in New York, and her poem, The New Colossus, which helped raise money for the statue and is on a plaque at the Statue of Liberty today.
