XIII. Whittier.


No extensive bibliography of Whittier exists. The most noteworthy list, prepared by Bierstadt, E. H., is concerned chiefly with detailed descriptions of the poet’s important separate publications. Rarer items are listed in the catalogue of the Whittier Centenary Exhibition, held at the Essex Institute, Salem, 1907–08 (see Woodman, A.), in the collections of first editions of American authors prepared by Foley, P. K. (1897) and by Arnold, W. H. (1901), and in the auction catalogues of the libraries of Montgomery, C. A. (Bangs, 1895), Whittier, J. G. (Anderson, 1903), Appleton, D. F. (Bangs, 1903), Pyser, C. E. (Merwin-Clayton, 1906), Maier, F. (Anderson, 1909), and Chamberlain, J. C. (Anderson, 1909).

Most of Whittier’s fugitive writings were rejected from any collection of his works, and, except in rare cases, are accessible only in the newspaper files in which they originally appeared or into which they were copied. No attempt has yet been made to trace even all of the poems to the place of first publication. Underwood gives a list of contributions to The New England Magazine, 1832–5, and to The Democratic Review, 1837–46, and a list of poems first printed in The National Era, 1847–59. For the poems published in The Atlantic Monthly, see the Peabody Institute Catalogue (1892), vol. 6.

Whittier’s uncollected poems, most of them juvenile, run well into the hundreds. S. T. Pickard in 1904 claimed to have in his possession more than three hundred such poems, dating from 1826 to 1835, which he had garnered from the files of old newspapers edited or contributed to by Whittier during these years. Manuscript collections in private hands would considerably swell this number. During his lifetime the poet never permitted any of these to be included in his works. In recent years, however, many of these rejected pieces have been made accessible, chiefly by S. T. Pickard in the columns of The Independent (1898–1912) and in his handbook entitled Whittier-Land (1904). The following list includes, in chronological order, all reclaimed poems that have come to notice, all poems dropped from early Whittier editions, and such other uncollected verse as may be found in early poetic anthologies, song books, pamphlets, and similar sources. The date and place of first publication are given, when possible, and all later reprints. No attempt is made to enumerate the scores of uncollected poems only accessible in rare newspapers and periodicals.
