This early work of poetry is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains a collection of poems by American Quaker poet John Greenleaf Whittier. This is a fascinating work and thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in the history of American poetry. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.… (mer)

This guy was a zealot on the right side of history. His abolitionist stance was based on his Biblical and Quaker roots. This book collects his poems from throughout his life including the political and war poetry. The highlight is Snow-bound, a slice of life in early 19th Century New England. Whittier’s rhyming poetry is remarkable, but he has fallen out of favor due to a movement away from hymn-like poems and less interest in the rural folk tales he often retells. ( )

This was an interesting series of poems. While they are archaic, some of the language possesses a fervent expression of poetical poise that brings the work up as a whole. There are numerous good lines, but they are mixed with a fixed tonal modality throughout. Overall, worth reading- but barely so.

2.5 stars. ( )

Gold foil edges, unusual bas-relief cover, I paid $15 at Goodwill.

This collection is a selection of Whittier's poetry. It is divided into five sections: "Prophet of the Republic" (social reform, especially in relation to slavery), "The Warming Haze of Yesterday" (memories), "Snow-Bound" (a long single poem), "Crafting the Past" (long, narrative poems), and "Tokens of an Inward Journey" (religious poems). The editor provides introductions to the work as a whole, each section, and each poem. In many cases, I found the introductions more interesting than the poems themselves although I liked some of the poetry very much. I was disappointed in the selection of religious poems; I much preferred those published in Selections from the Religious Poems of John Greenleaf Whittier published by the Tract Association of Friends in 1999. I particularly missed "Dear Lord and Father of Mankind," a hymn which appears in hymnals of various religions, for which Whittier wrote the words.

Unfortunately, this paperback book was very poorly bound; although I bought it new several years ago, it feel apart as I was reading it. ( )

Age after age, like waves, o'erran / The earth, uplifting brute and man; / And mind, at length, in symbols dark / Its meanings traced on stone and bark. / On leaf of palm, on sedge-wrought roll, / On plastic clay and leathern scroll, / Man wrote his thoughts; the ages passed / and Lo! the Press was found at last! / Then dead souls woke; the thoughts of men / Whose bones were dust revived again; / The cloister's silence found a tongue, / Old prophets spake, old poets sung.
