Excerpt from Sella, Thanatopsis and Other Poems: With Notes and a Biographical Sketch
The bulk of his poetry apart from his poetic translations is not considerable, and is made up almost wholly of short poems which are chie¿y inspired by his love of nature. R. H. Dana in his ... preface to The Idle Man says: I shall never forget with what feeling my friend Bryant some years ago 1 described to me the effect produced upon him by his meeting for the first time with Wordsworth's Ballads. He lived, when quite young, where but few works of poetry were to be had; at a period, too, when Pope was still the great idol of the Temple of Art. He said that upon open in g Wordsworth a thousand springs seemed to 'gush up at once in his heart, and the face of nature of a sudden to change into a strange freshness and life.
