Jonathan YardleyThe literature about Abraham Lincoln is so vast as to defy comprehension, yet historians and other scholars—not to mention novelists, poets, artists, sculptors, even composers—continue to find new and revealing things to say about this greatest of all Americans. Fred Kaplan's Lincoln: The Biography of a Writer, is the latest case in point, a book that is certain to become essential to our understanding of the 16th president. To be sure, many others before Kaplan have dealt in various ways with Lincoln's love of literature and writing, but no one has explored the subject so deeply or found so much meaning in it.
