William Cullen Bryant

$ 2.99

A prominent figure of early literary America, William Cullen Bryant was one of the ‘fireside poets’, whose romantic verses were among the first to rival successfully the works of the British poets, both at home and abroad. Bryant’s poetry is learned, thoughtful and meditative in character, while accessible to the general reader. His work went on to inspire the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe and Walt Whitman. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. For the first time in publishing history, this volume presents Bryant’s complete works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
