Excerpt from book: the work is really, as a creation of art, blemished by that with which we find fault; and because we rery much fear that the practice of such introduction is beginning to be, among certain writers, held necessary in order to spice the viand for the public taste. We would much rather speak in the spirit of hearty admiration which we feel for the work and its writer; and with this view we shall cull for our readers some of those gems which are strewed lip and down it, intermixing our comments with a few criticisms, made in no unfriendly spirit. The following descriptions seem to us among the most masterly things in the book. It is on such passages that we founded our assertion that Mrs. Transome's character was the writer's most ambitious effort. There is in them an elaboration and condensation which show with what pains they must have been pondered over, and written, and re-written, even in some of their sentences to the producing an effect of intricacy and over-elaboration. She threw herself into a chair, and sat with a fixed look, seeing nothing that was actually present, but inwardly seeing with painful vividness what had been present with her a little more than thirty years ago?the little round-limbed creature that had been leaning against her knees, and stamping tiny feet, and looking up at her with gurgling laughter. She had thought that the possession of this child would give unity to her life, and make some gladness through the changing years that would grow as fruit out of these early maternal caresses. But notliing had come just as she had wished. The mother's early raptures had lasted but a short time, and even while they lasted there had grown up in the midst of them a hungry desire, like a black poisonous plant feeding in the sunlight, ?the desire that her fi...

The American Critical Archives is a series of reference books that provide representative selections of contemporary reviews of the main works of major American authors. Specifically, each volume contains both full reviews and excerpts from reviews that appeared in newspapers and weekly and monthly periodicals, generally within a few months of the publication of the work concerned. There is an introductory historical overview by the volume editor, as well as checklists of additional reviews located but not quoted. This volume, a significant contribution to the reception history of Leaves of Grass, Specimen Days, and other works, reproduces the full range of the contemporary reviews of Whitman's books. Brash and iconoclastic, revered and reviled at various times, Whitman - because of his bold literary experiments and frank treatment of sexuality - was accorded an astonishing array of commentary, ranging from sympathy with his "hearty wholesomeness" to hostility toward poems that were a "mass of stupid filth". Reviews by Rufus Griswold, Fanny Fern, John Burroughs, William Dean Howells, Henry James, Hamlin Garland, Oscar Wilde, and (writing anonymously) Whitman himself, as well as a host of lesser-known writers, clarify much about both the poet and nineteenth-century American culture and its tastes and preoccupations, its myopia and acuity. These reviewers, the first to frame the issues for critical debate about Whitman, shaped his long-term reputation.
