American Poetry in the Eighteen Nineties: A Study of American Verse, 1890-1899, Based upon the Volumes from That Period Contained in the Harris Collection of American Poetry and Plays in the Brown University Library

By Carlin T. Kindilien | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
WHILE I accept the responsibility for the principal ideas and conclusions of this study, I have had help of various kinds from many people and I would like to acknowledge my indebtedness:
To Randall Stewart, who first suggested the subject as a doctoral dissertation, read my original manuscript, and suggested many improvements.
To Israel J. Kapstein and S. Foster Damon, who may not even remember the several hours which they spent with me a half dozen years ago talking about the Nineties, and helping me to focus my plan.
To William Charvat and Norman Holmes Pearson, whose detailed criticism helped me to make a book out of a thesis.
To David A. Jonah, whose interest in the Harris Collection of American Poetry and Plays encouraged my own in some dark periods of research; to Marion E. Brown and her staff in the Special Collections of the Brown University Library for their gracious and scholarly help to one who wanted to disturb several thousands of their volumes.
To Albert D. VanNostrand, who from start to finish, rendered service far beyond the call of scholarship or friendship. Time and again, he helped me pick up the pieces and arrange them when I had lost the pattern. His editorial contributions and his critical perceptions have aided me at every stage.
And, finally, to my wife, Priscilla Warren Kindilien, who above all others has shared with me every trouble and pleasure in this study. For her long-enduring encouragement and patience, and for her unrecompensable labor in completing the several manuscripts of this study, I offer this work as my thanks.
