“ I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear...” — Walt Whitman

American Poetry offers a collection of 26 verses by our finest poets, all with their unique perspective on the land they loved and accompanied by remarkable paintings that enhance the meaning of the words. Here, beautifully illustrated, are such unforgettable works as Robert Frost's pensive “ Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, ” Ralph Waldo Emerson's powerful “ Concord Hymn, ” Langston Hughes’ majestic “ The Negro Speaks of Rivers, ” Carl Sandburg’ s “ Jazz Fantasia, ” and Maya Angelou’ s “ Harlem Hopscotch.” Of course, some poems are just sheer fun— especially the beloved ode to our national pastime, “ Casey at the Bat.”
