Thoughts Sublime

Nineteenth century Americans loved sonnets. This volume contains eighty two poems found in either Godey's Lady's Book or the American Ladies' Magazine between 1828 and 1876. Some were widely reprinted in the nineteenth century while others might never have been published outside of Godey's until now. Not all of these sonnets follow the traditional form, but they represent a literature widely read by nineteenth century Americans. Over forty poets are represented here including, among others, Julia Perkins Pratt Ballard (Kruna), William Cullen Bryant, Ebenezer Elliott, Elizabeth Clementine Kinney, Mary E. Lee, Mary Spenser Pease, William Gilmore Simms, Elizabeth Oakes Smith, R. H. Stoddard, H. T. Tuckerman, and N. P. Willis. Most, but not all, are American. These poets speak to us across time with their poems about life, relationships, the natural world, and more. Read each one slowly, and savor.

About the Author

Deborah L Halliday, M.A., Ed.D., first became interested in Godey's poetry in the 1980s while she was working on a masters degree in American Studies at the University of Massachusetts-Boston. She began collecting bound volumes of the magazine and today has a collection that includes almost the entire run of Godey's and of Hale's earlier publication, the Ladies' Magazine. This volume of Godey's poetry is the result of her many hours spent page turning, reading, and prospecting for forgotten poems in the books' old dusty pages. She thinks it was worth it.
