Release Date: 1971
Genre: American poetry

John Greenleaf Whittier's Poetry was first published in 1971. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. In this volume Robert Warren Penn, the noted critic, poet, and novelist, provides a major new appraisal of the once enormously popular New England port, John Greenleaf Whittier, along with his selection of 36 of Whittier's poems. Through Warren's perceptive and illuminating discussion, the significance of Whittier as a writer for our time becomes clear. In his introduction Warren shows that Whittier's deep commitment to his fellowman, especially his devotion to the cause of abolition, profoundly influenced his writing. In his estimate of Whittier's place in literature, Warren invokes the questions What does the past mean to an American? and in this context he compares Whittier with Cooper, Hawthorne, Melville, and Faulkner. He finds that Whittier's "star belongs in their constellation. If it is less commanding than any of theirs it yet shines with a clear and authentic light."

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.
