We’ll meet Saturday, December 5 in Ann Arbor to discuss translation. The text we’ll focus on for our open session on Saturday morning is Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s massive, mid-19th century anthology Poets and Poetry of Europe (Philadelphia: Cary and Hart, 1845); a pdf of the Google Books scan of a New York Public Library copy of the text can be found here; you can also view and download it directly via Hathi Trust.
Three contemporaneous reviews may also be of interest:
- The North American Review (July 1845)
- The American Whig Review: Part 1 (Nov. 1846) and Part 2 (Dec. 1846)
- The United States Magazine and Democratic Review (Feb. 1847)
