Product Overview

1881. The biography of Bayard Taylor, Poet and travel writer who produced popular chronicles of his journeys at home and abroad, as well as novels and collections of poetry. After he went to the Middle East, India, China, and Japan he published three volumes that mark his zenith as a travel writer, including The Lands of the Saracen; or, Pictures of Palestine, Asia Minor, Sicily, and Spain. His contemporaries found these fascinating, but their popularity did not last. His romantic verse in Ximena, or the Battle of the Sierra Morena, and other Poems secured him a long-standing assignment as correspondent for the New York Tribune. Perhaps the best of his poetry is in Poems of the Orient and in his verse drama Prince Deukalion. His most ambitious work was his metrical translation into English of Goethe's Faust, which earned him an appointment as U.S. minister to Germany in 1878. He died in Berlin.
