This volume presents work from three great American poets, all of whom preferred the solitary life; yet each responded, in very different ways, to the greatest social event of their times, the challenge of living in a country recovering from a civil war. The selection from Melville aims to show the range of his shorter verse, from the public poet intensely concerned with the Civil War and its meaning for humanity, to the private poet, as he withdrew from the eyes of the world. Robinson's quintessential and much anthologized famous poems can be read alongside the less widely-read pieces also included here. Tuckerman is a neglected poet, whose poems reflect his friendship with Tennyson and his grief for the loss of his wife.

Herman Melville (1819-91) is now best known for his novels, including Moby Dick, although for the last 30 years of his life he wrote only poetry. Frederick Goddard Tuckerman (1821-73) published only a single volume of poetry in 1860, yet he is one of the most significant poets of the 19th century. Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869-1935) was awarded the Pulitzer Prize three times for his poetry. Jonathan Bean used to teach at the University of Massachusetts, where he still lives.
