American poet Edwin Markham wrote the poem The Man with the Hoe after he saw a painting called L'homme a la houe by the French artist Jean-François Millet. This poem was first presented publicly at a New Year's party in 1898. It was first published in the San Fransisco Examiner in January 1899 and also reprinted in many other newspapers across the United States because it dealt with the working class. It was used as the opening poem in Markham's 1902 collection The Man with a Hoe and Other Poems.
