This is a wonderful book of the South’s historical contribution to poetry features five poets: Edgar Allan Poe, Paul Hamilton Hayne, Henry Timrod, Sidney Lanier, and Abram J. Ryan. The first section of the book contains biographical and critical information on each. The second section provides selections of the poetry of each man, and the third section has notes to the poems. Any Southern library should be happy to have this on its shelves and the patrons are still showing an interest in it. Because of its historical value, keep it on the shelves as long as it holds up.
