1848. Lowell is one of the group of authors sometimes called the Fireside Poets, or the Schoolroom Poets, a group which also included Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, John Greenleaf Whittier, and Oliver Wendell Holmes. Because of their conservative approach to verse and the often blatant morality in their poetry, the very qualities that made them popular in their day, have put them out of favor for much of the twentieth century. However, given that Lowell was an ardent abolitionist he may not have been considered conservative in his day. This volume contains a biographical sketch, earlier poems, miscellaneous poems, memorial verses, The Biglow Papers; Under the Willows and other poems; Poems of the War; Heartsease and Rue and Last Poems.
