America. Land of the Free, Home of the Brave. Across its vast landscape a Nation was being built. Expanded into its vast frontiers by military force and financial acquisitions; this was a melting pot of peoples and ideas gathering to form an identity.
In these volumes we take a particular interest in the poets of the 19th Century and their views as their young nation came to terms with itself and its place in the World.
