Songs of three centuries.: Whittier, John Greenleaf, ed. With Portrait and Steel Plate 3. With Portrait and 32 illustrations. A volume of choice Poems. Twould be doing injustice to the compiler of this Free sex dating in trimont mn 56176 to Fuk that his work implied any lack of appreciation of the excellent anthologies akeady published in this country. Dana's "llousehold Book of Poetry is no misnomer; and the honored names of Bryant and Emerson are a sufficient guaranty for "Parnassus" and the "Library of Song. To use Shelley's definition of poetry, I have endeavored to give something like "a record of the best thoughts and happiest moments of the best Broomg happiest minds.
Of course, no anthology, however ample its extracts, locl do justice to the illimitable genius of Shakespeare. It is possible that it may be thought an loca prominence has been given to the slus of the period beginning with Cowper and reaching down to Tennyson and his living contemporaries. But it must be considered that the last century has been prolific in song; and, if Shakespeare and Milton still keep their unapproachable position, "souls Fuc, stars that dwell apart," there can inn little doubt that the critical essayist of the twentieth century will make a large hiol upon the present estimate, not only of Cowper and Fuck local sluts in broomy hill, bromy of Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, Keats, Browning, Tennycon, and Emerson.
It will be seen that the middle of the sixteenth century is the earliest broommy of my citations. The selections I slute made indicate, in a general way, my preferences; but I have not felt at liberty to oppose my own judgment or prejudice to the best critical authorities, or to attempt a reversal of the verdicts of Time. It would be too much to hope that I have, in all cases, made the best possible exposition of an author's productions. Judging from my own experience in looking over selected poems, I cannot doubt that my readers will often have occasion to question the wisdom of my choice, and regret broomyy onussion of favorite pieces.
It is rarely that persons of equal capacity for right judging can be found to coincide entirely in regard to the merits of a particular poem. The canons of criticism are broojy no means fixed and infallible; and the fashion of poetry, like that of the world, "passeth away. It would be difficult for any literary Fuck local sluts in broomy hill to render a good reason for condemning as a heretic the man who finds the "Castle of Indolence" pleasanter reading than the "Faerie Queene," who prefers Cowper to Dryden, Scott to Byron, and Shelley to Scott, who passes by Moore's "Lalla Rookh"to take up Clough's "Bothie of Tober-na Vuolich," who thinks Emerson's "Threnody" better than Milton's ih and who would not exchange a good old ballad or a song of Burns for the stateliest of epics.
I he considerable space which I on given to American authors will, I trust, find its justification in the citations from their writings. The poetical literature of our country can scarcely be said to have a longer date than that of a single generation. As a matter of fact, the very fathers of it are still living. All further attempts to colonize the hills and pastures of New England from old mythologies were abandoned; our boys and girls no longer figured in impossible pastorals. If we have no longer ambitious Columbiads and Conquests of Canaan, we have at least truth and nature, wit and wisdom, in Bryant's "Robert of Lincoln," Emerson's" llumblebee," Lowell's "Courtin'," and "The One-lloss Shay" of llolmes.
V the very large number of really noticeable poems, many of which, although in my own estimation vastly better than those of some of the old versifiers whose age and general reputation have secured them a place in this volume, I have been compelled to omit solely from lack of space. The future gleaner in the fields over which I have passed will doubtless find many an ungarnered sheaf quite as well worth preserving as these I have gathered within the scanty limits of my compendium. The rare humorists of our time, especially such poets as Holmes and Lowell, can be only partially represented in these necessarily brief selections. It may be observed that the three divisions of the book do not strictly correspond to the headings which indicate them, - the first, for instance, beginning before Shakespeare and ending somewhat after Milton.
It is difficult to be quite exact in such classifications; and as it seemed desirable to make their number as small as possible, I trust the few leading names mentioned may serve to characterize the periods they accompany with a sufficient degree of accuracy. Pope was doubtless the great master of what is sometimes spoken of as artificial verse, shaping the mould of poetic thought for his own and the succeeding generation; but as Dryden stands in point of time nearer to the colossal naine which closes the first period of English song, he has been chosen as a representative of the second, in connection and contrast with Burns, who, in his vigorous rebound from the measured pomp of rhymed heroics to the sturdiest and homeliest Scottish simplicity, gave to the modern lyric its inspiration, striking for the age the musical pitch of true and tender emotion, as decidedly as Wordsworth has touched for it the key-note of the thoughtful hannonies of natural and intellectual beauty.
Tennyson undoubtedly stands at the head of all living singers, and his name might well serve as the high-water mark of modern verse; but as our volnine gives a liberal space to American authorship, I have ventured to let the name of the author of "Evangeline" represent, as it well may, the presant poetic culture of our English-speaking people at home and abroad. While by no means holding myself to a strict responsibility as regards the sentiment and language of the poems which make up this volume, and while I must confess to a large tolerance of personal individuality manifesting itself in widely varying forms of expression, I have still somewhat scrupulously endeavored to avoid in my selections everything which seemed liable to the charge of irreverence or questionable morality.
In this respect the poetry of the last quarter of a century, with a few exceptions, has been noteworthy for purity of thought and language, as well as for earnestness and religious feeling. The Muse of our time is a free but profoundly reverent inquirer; it is rarely found in "the seat of the scorner. I have also, as a specialty of the work, made a careful selection of the best hymns in our language. I am prepared to lind my method open to criticism from some quarters, but I have catered not so much for the scholarly few as for the great mass of readers to whose "snatched leisure" my brief lyrical selections would seem to have a special adaptation.
