|The kindly-earnest, brave, foreseeing man, / Sagacious, patient, dreading praise, not blame, / New birth of our new soil, the first American.|

From Tennyson to Whitman
The 200 poems in this last of a three-volume anthology constitute 40 nineteenth-century Britons—such as Browning, Arnold and Rossetti—and Americans—from Bryant and Emerson to Poe and Longellow.
