Review: Nineteenth-Century American Poetry

User Review  - Erin Thomas - Goodreads

Nearly half this book is dedicated to the poetry of Whitman. While Whitman's tripe is definitely an aspect of nineteenth century American Poetry, it certainly doesn't deserve quite so much attention in a book supposedly dedicated to presenting a sampling of this century's poets of note.
