Regarded as one of the Fireside Poets, John Greenleaf Whittier was influenced by the poetry of Robert Burns and his early works reveal a Romantic strain. In later years, Whittier became an eloquent advocate of justice, tolerance, and liberal humanitarianism. The lofty spiritual and moral values he proclaimed earned him the title of “America’s finest religious poet” and many of his poems are still sung as church hymns. Whittier dedicated twenty years of his life to the abolitionist cause and he is chiefly remembered today for his powerful and stirring anti-slavery writings. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Whittier’s complete works, with rare poems, related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
