From The Library of America, three new titles in the exciting series that takes a fresh look at America's most enduring poetry. National Poetry Month brings three new titles--brilliant selections of John Greenleaf Whittier, Kenneth Fearing, and Muriel Rukeyser--as The Library of America continues its major new undertaking: a comprehensive series presenting the most significant American poetry, selected and introduced by today's most distinguished poets and critics. Elegantly designed and textually authoritative, the American Poets Project makes available the full range of American poetic accomplishment in compact and attractive editions, including volumes devoted to single poets and anthologies exploring particular themes, genres, and eras. A devout Quaker who became a passionate poetic spokesman for the antislavery movement, John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-92) 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 "Ichabod," his famous denunciation of Daniel Webster for his support of the Fugitive Slave Law. In the long poem "SnowBound" (1866) he created a warm and enthralling portrait of rural life, while such works as "Barbara Frietchie" and "The Barefoot Boy" have been enduringly popular. This new selection brings together Whittier's many aspects--political, religious, richly descriptive--and reaffirms the emotional honesty and depth of his work.
