Whittier and His Poetry (Barnes & Noble Digital Library) by William Henry Hudson

This short biography of John Greenleaf Whittier, published in 1917, was part of the Poetry and Life series, combining biography and poetry to present a fully rounded portrait of its subject. Hudson was of the opinion that Whittier “was not a great poet… He produced nothing on a large scale which is in the least likely to survive.” However, Hudson believed Whittier’s brilliance was his pure truthfulness in poetry.
