Item description for John Greenleaf Whittier: Selected Poems (American Poets Project) by Brenda Wineapple, Kathleen Kerr, Nicolas, Barry Scott & Charles R. Kesler...

The work of the abolitionist poet is featured here, including his passionate denunciation of the Fugitive Slave Law and his fascinating portraits of rural life that combine religion, politics, and rich narration.

Publishers Description
A devout Quaker who became a passionate poetic spokesman for the antislavery movement, John Greenleaf Whittier (1807A-92) was one of the most beloved American poets of his era. In the years before the Civil War, he campaigned tirelessly against slavery in poems that include A"Ichabod,A" his famous denunciation of Daniel Webster for his support of the Fugitive Slave Law. In the long poem A"Snow-BoundA" (1866) he created a warm and enthralling portrait of rural life, while such works as A"Barbara FrietchieA" and A"The Barefoot BoyA" have been enduringly popular. This new selection brings together WhittierA's many aspectsA-political, religious, richly descriptiveA-and reaffirms the emotional honesty and depth of his work.

Reviews - What do customers think about John Greenleaf Whittier: Selected Poems (American Poets Project)?

An American classic -Lines remain with me  Feb 7, 2005
I remember reading in school ' Snowbound' and ' Barefoot boy'( Barefoot boy with cheek of tan) and 'Barbara Freitchie (Shoot if you must this old grey head, but spare your country's flag, ' she said). These poems provided pictures of American life, pictures of a moral and somehow innocent world. That lines of these poems remain with me mean the poems live for me.
Whittier is not a great poet but he is a sincere and strong representative of his own time and world. Whether in his opposition to slavery or his defending of a simple kind of American courage he speaks to the moral sense, the sense of something higher in us.
