From the distinguished “English Men of Letters” series comes this biography of Quaker author and activist John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892). A member of nineteenth century New England’s family-friendly Fireside Poets School, Whittier was frequently mobbed for his outspoken antislavery beliefs. Written by a fellow abolitionist, this 1902 life story is a wealth of anecdote and reminiscence from Whittier’s boyhood to his death.
