John Greenleaf Whittier : unknown

'By the way do you like Maud. I cannot say I do. It strikes me that if John Smith or Bill Jones had written it, they would have been put into an asylum. There are only those two parts beginning "Oh that it were possible" and "I have lead her home, my love, my only friend" that are not like ravings of a lunatic it strikes me, and yet my friends the Sellars say they admire it more than anything he has written [...] By the way I admire Whittier very much, and am very grateful to you for introducing him to me.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Emily De Quincey
