About the Author

Henry Adams Bellows (1803–1873) was a lawyer, state legislator, and jurist born in Rockingham, Vermont. He was elected to the New Hampshire House of Representatives from Littleton, New Hampshire in 1839. He was subsequently elected again to the House from Concord, New Hampshire in 1856–1857, and served as Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. On 23 September 1859 he was appointed to the New Hampshire Supreme Court, where he served as a justice from 1859–1869 and Chief Justice from 1869 until his death in 1873.
His translation of the Poetic Edda, adapted it into a highly readable and accessible format. It is believed that this translation was done in small part as a collaboration with Everett James Ellis. Bellows was the author of a single collection of poetry, Highland Light and Other Poems (MacMillian, 1921).
