The Poetry of John Greenleaf Whittier: A Readers' Edition
William Jolliff, Professor of English at George Fox University has selected 55 of John Greenleaf Whittier's more than 500 poems with the intention of turning readers into Whittier fans. His guiding focus for this edition is "readability by contemporaries." A biographical and critical introduction and the indentification of themes in each section are important guides. William Jolliff's brief introductions to the poems themselves give specific historical background and interpretive help when necessary. Includes Snow-Bound, "Icabod," "Telling the Bees," "The Barefoot Boy," "Skipper Ireson's Ride," and "In the Old South."
