Book Description1877. Illustrated by W.J. Linton and J. McEntee. William Cullen Bryant was an American poet and editor. At one time, he practiced law, but later devoted himself entirely to writing. He began his career with Thanatopsis (or View of Death),a boyhood piece which astonished America when it was published in 1817, and which has ever since been a favorite with readers. The idea of the poem, that the earth is a vast sepulcher of human life, was borrowed from other poets; but the stately blank verse and the noble appreciation of nature are Bryant's own. The Flood of Years was written when he was a sage of eighty. Among the Trees is one of his best nature poems. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
