Kettell
Specimens of American Poetry
With Critical and Biographical Notices
In Three Volumes
 
Edited by Samuel Kettell
 
These 454 selections from 188 authors form the first major verse anthology in the United States. Kettell, who knew many of the poets, pens personal and sometimes withering biographical essays to achieve a comprehensive rather than solely pantheonic collection.
