    Whittier, John Greenleaf
    EDITION: BINDING: PUBLISHER: Library of America (03/30/2004) PAGES:
    SUMMARY A devout Quaker who became a passionate poetic spokesman for the antislavery movement, John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–92) was one of the most beloved American poets of his era. In the years before the Civil War, he campaigned tirelessly against slavery in poems that include “Ichabod,” his famous denunciation of Daniel Webster for his support of the Fugitive Slave Law. In the long poem “Snow-Bound” (1866) he created a warm and enthralling portrait of rural life, while such works as “Barbara Frietchie” and “The Barefoot Boy” have been enduringly popular. This new selection brings together Whittier’s many aspects—political, religious, richly descriptive—and reaffirms the emotional honesty and depth of his work.

    Abolitionists in NH
    John Greenleaf Whittier wrote his short poem "New Hampshire" to honor the Granite State's bold unique stand against slavery in 1846, decades before the Emancipation Proclamation. The final couplet, often quoted, is a stirring call to arms against human bondage with New Hampshire leading the battle: Courage, then, Northern hearts! Be firm, be true;
    What one brave State hath done, can ye not also do? The reality is less glorious. In fact, New Hampshire's early track record in opposing discrimination, like most of the industrialized Yankee North would win no gold metals. Like its southern cousins , NH started out as a slave state. Some of its stately seaport homes were built from slave trade profits. By the Revolution, African-American slaves served white Seacoast owners in most prestigious families the Cutts, the Whipples, the Ladds, the Lears, the Langdons, the Wentworths. Slave owning, North and South, was a sign of affluence and power. Although the "business" of slavery was outlawed in NH soon after the Revolution, no formal emancipation was ever issued.

    29. About John Greenleaf Whittier
    John Greenleaf Whittier, the most outspoken abolitionist among the poets of his generation, was born into a Quaker farming family in Haverhill, Massachusetts, in 1807.
    John Greenleaf
    John Greenleaf Whittier, the most outspoken abolitionist among the poets of his generation, was born into a Quaker farming family in Haverhill, Massachusetts, in 1807. Although his early life was one of relative hardship and isolation, his constant exposure to the wonders of nature gave him a poet's appreciation for the beauties of the world around him. His first poem, The Exile's Departure , was published by William Lloyd Garrison in the Newburyport Free Press in June of 1826. Thus began a lifelong friendship with the fiery abolitionist leader. After acquiring the equivalent of a high school education (Garrison had persuaded the elder Whittier to allow it), Whittier supported himself for a time as a teacher and a shoemaker. Eventually, his involvement with Garrison pulled him into the world of politics. He became the editor of the American Manufacturer in Boston and then of the Haverhill Gazette and the New England Review and a co-founder (in 1839) of the Liberty party, a "political-action group of the Abolitionist party." From his ready-made platform, Whittier joined Garrison and others in assailing the evils of slavery. His first collection of poems dealing with abolition was published in 1837. The rigors of his boyhood had left him in poor health and eventually forced his retirement from the high-pressure world of newspaper editing, but he continued to write tirelessly against the South's "peculiar institution" and in favor of emancipation.

    The Romantic Period, 1820-1860: Essayists and Poets: John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892)
    Index John Greenleaf Whittier, the most active poet of the era, had a background very similar to Walt Whitman's. He was born and raised on a modest Quaker farm in Massachusetts, had little formal education, and worked as a journalist. For decades before it became popular, he was an ardent abolitionist. Whittier is respected for anti-slavery poems such as "Ichabod," and his poetry is sometimes viewed as an early example of regional realism. Whittier's sharp images, simple constructions, and ballad- like tetrameter couplets have the simple earthy texture of Robert Burns. His best work, the long poem "Snow Bound," vividly recreates the poet's deceased family members and friends as he remembers them from childhood, huddled cozily around the blazing hearth during one of New England's blustering snowstorms. This simple, religious, intensely personal poem, coming after the long nightmare of the Civil War, is an elegy for the dead and a healing hymn. It affirms the eternity of the spirit, the timeless power of love in the memory, and the undiminished beauty of nature, despite violent outer political storms. Index

    John Greanleaf Whittier , the son of a Quaker farmer, was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts, on 17th December, 1807. Although he received only a limited formal education, he developed a strong interest in literature.
    When Whittier was only 19 he had a poem, The Exile's Departure , accepted by William Lloyd Garrison , in the Newburyport Free Press . The two men became close friends and they worked together in the campaign against slavery . His pamphlet, Justice and Expediency , made him a prominent figure in the Anti-Slavery Society
    Whittier's first book to be published was, Legends of New England in Prose and Verse (1831). This was followed by two long poems, Moll Pitcher (1832) and Mogg Megone Poems Written During the Progress of the Abolition Question appeared in 1838.
    Whittier edited the Pennsylvania Freeman (1838-40) and wrote several anti-slavery poems included The Yankee Girl The Slavery-Ships The Hunters of Men Massachusetts to Virginia and Ichabod . His poems on slavery were collected as Voices of Freedom (1846). Whittier's concern for the suffering of others was well illustrated in his book

    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892)
    Contributing Editor:
    Elaine Sargent Apthorp
    Classroom Issues and Strategies
    Students may be put off by various features of the poetry, such as: the regularity of meter (which can impress the twentieth-century ear as tediousgenerally we don't "hear" ballads well anymore unless they are set to music); conventional phrasing and alliteration; place-names in "Massachusetts to Virginia"; effect of stereotyping from a clumsy effort to render black dialect in "At Port Royal." I think we can take clues from such responses and turn the questions around, asking why, in what context, and for what audience such poetry would be successful. Consider reasons why one might want to give his verses such regular meter, such round and musically comfortable phrasing; consider the message of the verses, the political protest the poet is makingand the mass action he is trying to stimulate through his poetry. This could lead to a discussion of topical poetry, the poetry of political agitation/protest, as a genreand of Whittier's work as a contribution to that tradition. Some activities that can bring this home to the students include (1) having students commit a few stanzas to memory and give a dramatic recitation of them to the class (when one has fallen out of one's chair shouting defiantly, "No fetters on the Bay State! No slave upon our land!" one knows in one's own body why declamatory poetry is composed as it is), and (2) comparing samples of topical poetry and song by other authors (e.g., poetry of the Harlem Renaissance; the evolutions of "John Brown's Body," "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," and "Solidarity Forever"; union ballads ["The Internationale"] and protest songs of the Great Depression [Woody Guthrie's "Deportees," for example], and contemporary popular songs of protest, like Michael Jackson's recording of "Man in the Mirror," Bruce Hornsby's "The Way It Is," etc.).

    He is now remembered as an early local colorist, whose example and support blessed the careers of later regional artists (such as Sarah Orne Jewett, whom he championed and advised), and whose warm depictions of American rural life rise occasionally above the patterned sentimentality which makes so much nineteenth-century poetry inaccessible to twentieth-century readers. His present reputation rests largely on a single poemthe nostalgic Snowbound (1866), in which the poet re-creates a scene of his childhood on the weatherbeaten, isolated Massachusetts farmstead where he was born; describing the family snowbound indoors together, the poet dwells with poignant affection on the firelit faces of beloved family members, now long dead, but then gathered in the midst of life around a winter fireside. Although he produced many volumes of poetry and prose, and was widely published throughout his career, it was Snowbound which brought him national recognition as a poet and, after a lifetime of poverty, a comfortable income as a writer. But in his own time, and his own estimation, John Greenleaf Whittier was an abolitionist first, and a poet second.

    John Greenleaf Whittier
    [December 17, 1807 - September 7, 1892]
    One of America's most famous poets, John Greenleaf Whittier, lived over the border in Massachusetts but spent many days in Hampton and wrote six poems about the town and beach. His mother Abigail Hussey was from the line of the Hussey family of Dover, but Whittier mistakenly believed he descended from the Hussey family of Hampton and thus looked upon Hampton as the town of his ancestors. In fact, none of his ancestors lived in Hampton. Below are links about Whittier, as well as links to some of his Hampton poems.

    40. Whittier, Poet Laureate Of Reform
    Highlights his ardent abolitionism. Includes selected poetry, an autobiographical letter, and the poet s account of an abolitionist convention.
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892) was the poet laureate of reform. He was an ardent abolitionist, a supporter of William Lloyd Garrison, who was the first to publish his poetry. He also edited anti-slavery newspapers, supported John Quincey Adams' campaign against the "Gag Rule," and supported various free soil political parties before becoming a staunch Republican. He was also a strong supporter of Temperance and became an advocate of the Maine Law. Whitter also was an advocate of woman's rights, although a somewhat cautious one in that he hoped that women would gain political rights without weakening traditional family roles. An extremely prolific writer, Whittier also produced poems about nature, Quaker religiosity, folk tales, and innumerable other subjects including the "barefoot boy with cheek of tan." It is his role as an anti-slavery activist and his immense popularity that we focus on here. Compared to his great contemporaries Whitman, Poe, Dickinson Whittier comes off as a mediocre poet. Certainly none of his poems have the imaginative reach of Whitman or the haunting music of Poe or the startling precision of Dickinson. What they did possess was the power to appeal to the imaginations of Northerners in the middle of the nineteenth century. There is a message for us in his choice of metaphors, in his strong religiosity, in his moral sensibilities. He appealed to what his audience regarded as their higher natures.
