Synopsis

In her lifetime, Lizette Woodworth Reese was internationally admired for her poetic genius and hailed by H. L. Mencken as one of the most distinguished poets in the United States. This volume begins with a short biographical sketch of the poet and includes some 250 of her poems. Poems are arranged into sections illustrating her major themes--nature, love, remembrance, faith, family, history, and literature--and section introductions help to place Reese in the continuum of American poetry and to indicate her influence on succeeding generations of poets. The book includes an extensive bibliography and a subject index.
