Congregational Hymns from the Poetry of John Greenleaf Whittier

Author: Samuel J. Rogal
Publisher: McFarland
ISBN: 9780786457281
Release Date: 2009-11-25
Genre: Religion

Poet John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892) proved a significant contributor to American Protestant hymnody—since 1843, more than 2,100 hymnals published in the United States have included adaptations of his works—despite the fact that Whittier never considered himself a hymnist. This book compares and contrasts Whittier’s original published texts with versions adapted as hymns, exhibiting the hymnodic elements of his poetry and displaying the textual changes to Whittier’s lines by hymnal editors from a variety of denominations. The work offers in-depth comparative studies of many of his poems and their resultant hymns, a catalogue of hymns-from-poems, a chronology of Whittier’s life and works, notes, bibliography and index.

Genre: Literary Criticism

This book examines the works of the political poets John Greenleaf Whittier and Ebenezer Elliott, drawing comparisons to contemporary hip hoppers who take their words from local newspapers and other discursive sources that they read, hear, and observe.
