Joel Barlow was an American writer, businessman, preacher, and statesman. Born on a Connecticut farm and raised in the Puritan ethic, his senior year at Yale was interrupted by the American Revolution. After the war, he had success with his book, The Vision of Columbus, and settled in Paris, where he was eventually awarded French citizenship for publishing his idealistic views of the Revolution. Generally associated with the Connecticut Wits, Barlow wrote long, patriotic poems, but is probably best remembered for short, nostalgic verses. He was in Europe trying to negotiate a closer treaty with Napoleon when he published the powerful poem Advice to a Raven in Russia; he died during the French Army's retreat.
