Noting the date of first publication is key to understanding this book. It examines the poetry of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, John Greenleaf Whittier, James Russell Lowell, and Oliver Wendell Holmes. This is a historically interesting book but it isn’t critical to the collection. If it ever goes 10 years without attention, let it go.
