1899. With an introduction by A.A. Adee. Lowell is one of the group of authors sometimes called the Fireside Poets, or the Schoolroom Poets, a group which also included Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, John Greenleaf Whittier, and Oliver Wendell Holmes. Because of their conservative approach to verse and the often blatant morality in their poetry, the very qualities that made them popular in their day, have put them out of favor for much of the twentieth century. This volume contains a collection of Lowell's dispatches from Spain; sent while he was serving as the American Minister at the Spanish Court.
