HistPoe in LA!

We’ll be meeting in Los Angeles May 3-4, beginning with a public event on Ballads on Friday, May 3, followed by our usual intensive Saturday discussion on May 4.  While the program for May 3 is still being sorted out, we agreed to prepare the following texts for Saturday’s discussion (click on the titles to download Google Books scans):

Thomas Campbell, Gertrude of Wyoming (1809)

Elizabeth Oakes Smith, The Sinless Child (1843)*

*Note that Smith’s poem was first published in two parts in the Southern Literary Messenger:  8. 1 (Jan 1842), 86-89 and 8.2 (Feb. 1842), 121-125.  Colleagues with access to the American Periodical Series Online might wish to take a look at the poem in this context, too.
