Whitman's & Dickinson's contemporaries : an anthology of their verse by Robert Bain( )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 2,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson were not the poetic stars of their day; Whitman's following was minuscule, if influential, and only a few friends knew that Dickinson wrote poetry. But the contemporaries who eclipsed these major poets now have largely disappeared from our literary landscape. In this distinctive anthology, Robert Bain gathers together thirteen other scholars to re-present the poetry of these former luminaries, allowing readers to rediscover them, reconstruct the poetic contexts of their age, and better understand why Whitman and Dickinson now overshadow other poets of their time. Arranged chronologically according to the birth dates of the poets, this anthology introduces each poet's work, providing biographical information and discussing the major forms and themes of the work. Each introduction places the poet in a literary and historical context with Whitman and Dickinson and provides a bibliography of secondary sources
