New Hampshire : a poem with notes and grace notes by Robert Frost( Book )

In 1924, Robert Frost was awarded the first of his four Pulitzer Prizes in Poetry for his masterful 1923 collection, New Hampshire: A Poem with Notes and Grace Notes. The volume not only includes enduring standards of American poetry like "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," and "Fire and Ice," but it also features one of the most intriguing dedications in twentieth-century literature ("To Vermont and Michigan," a clever nod to the two other states closely associated with the poet). Featuring intricate Arts and Crafts Movement-inspired woodcuts of pastoral New Hampshire scenery by prominent American illustrator J. J. Lankes, this early edition provides a gorgeous setting for Frost's classic collection

The woodcut art of J.J. Lankes by Welford Dunaway Taylor( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Woodcut Art of J.J. Lankes, Welford Taylor has painted a portrait of a crotchety, stubborn, and neglected master. And on these pages the reader can see, for the first time, the varied and striking images he created of the places he loved, often, like himself, lonely and abandoned, and the people he admired. The book also contains a chronology of his life, an extensive bibliography of his published work, and a comprehensive collation of his prints."--Jacket

John Henry by Roark Bradford( Book )

2 editions published in 1931 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roark Bradford's 1931 novel and 1939 play dealing with the legendary folk-hero John Henry (both titled John Henry) were extremely influential in their own time but have long been unavailable or extremely hard to find. In this unique collection, Steven C. Tracy has joined Bradford's seminal works in a new critical edition to help contextualize both the novel and play, making these vital texts widely available again for scholars of folklore and African American literature." "This new volume includes an expansive introduction that explores Bradford's life and work, critical responses to the novel and play, and a survey of John Henry's pervasive influence in folk, literary, and popular culture. It also features a wide array of supplementary materials, including a selected bibliography and discography related to Bradford and John Henry; transcriptions of a number of folksong texts and recordings available during the 1930s; and a chronology of the lives of both Bradford and Henry. As Tracy's introduction makes clear, such a consideration of Bradford - set in the context of writers, both black and white, drawing upon African American folklore and using dialects along with stereotypical and non-stereotypical portrayals - is long overdue." "In pairing Bradford's two treatments of the quintessentially American story of John Henry, Tracy has provided the definitive edition of two classic American texts, and in so doing, he provides a welcome opportunity to reflect on the various paths by which African American traditions have infiltrated the cultural mainstream."--book jacket
