The supernaturalism of New England by John Greenleaf Whittier( Book )

22 editions published between 1847 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Because John Greenleaf Whittier looked upon them as source material for creative writing, he was among the first American folklore collectors to gather oral traditions intentionally. Whittier's status as one of the earliest collectors of American folk traditions is evidenced in two works, the Supernaturalism of New England (1847), the work at hand, and Legends of New England (1831), which is also available from Clearfield Company. As folklorist W.K. McNeil writes in his new Introduction, "Whittier was convinced that the Puritan settlers of New England assimilated American traditions and grafted them onto European lore . . . ." Unlike his literary contemporaries James Athearn Jones and Mary Henderson Eastman, whose works were solely concerned with Native American traditions, Whittier, in the Supernaturalism of New England, concentrated on superstitions and supernatural tales transmitted by the white settlers of the region. While the accounts vary, most deal with the appearance of ghosts or specters as omens of death, fulfillments of the wishes of deceased persons, or clues to the identities of wrong-doers. In poems and tales like "The New Wife and the Old" which he recalled from his own childhood, "The Black Fox" which reputedly haunted the Salmon River in Connecticut, or the tale of William Morse's haunted house in Newburyport, Massachusetts, Whittier has preserved the "innocent nature and simple poetic beauty of the traditions in question.""--Amazon.com viewed Oct. 14, 2020

Selected poems by John Greenleaf Whittier( Book )

9 editions published between 1907 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A devout Quaker who became a passionate poetic spokesman for the antislavery movement, John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-92) was one of the most beloved American poets of his era. In the years before the Civil War, he campaigned tirelessly against slavery in poems that include "Ichabod," his famous denunciation of Daniel Webster for his support of the Fugitive Slave Law. In the long poem "Snow-Bound" (1866) he created a warm and enthralling portrait of rural life, while such works as "Barbara Frietchie" and "The Barefoot Boy" have been enduringly popular. This new selection brings together Whittier's many aspects--political, religious, richly descriptive--and reaffirms the emotional honesty and depth of his work

In Legends of New England, Whittier assembled eighteen stories, seven in prose sketches and eleven in verse, of the kinds of tales he thought most useful for literary treatment, in most cases giving the historical context of the legend. Among these are narratives of specter ships and warriors, doomed lovers, Indian atrocities, animals with strange powers, frontier massacres, demonic assemblies, and haunted houses. Originally published in 1831
