Product Description

John Hollander, editor. This landmark anthology gathers over 1,000 poems by nearly 150 poets to reveal the remarkable beauty and astonishing diversity of the distinctly American tradition of poetry that arose in the 19th century. This first volume extends chronologically from the classical couplets of Philip Freneau to the pioneering free verse of Whitman. Alongside generous selections by Poe, Emerson, Bryant, Longfellow, and Whittier are poems yet to achieve full recognition: mystical sonnets by Jones Very, the Romantic fantasias of Maria Gowen Brooks. Woven throughout are popular ballads, hymns, and songs, like "Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear," whose lyrics still echo in our American language. Contains newly researched biographical sketches of each poet, a year by year chronology of poets and poetry, and extensive notes. "There is simply nothing else like it in print." -Helen Vendler, The New Republic
