Works published


United Kingdom

United States

  • George Moses Horton, Hope of Liberty — Poems by a Slave, a third edition of Hope of Liberty, originally published in 1829 together with poetry by Phillis Wheatley; a second edition was published in Philadelphia in 1837 by an abolitionist group, as was this Boston edition; Horton (still alive, unlike Wheatley) received no royalties (although he slave was trying to earn money for his freedom), and likely didn't even know that these editions had been published in the North[2]
  • James Russell Lowell, "Class Poem", the author's first published poem, a satire on new ideas and reforms, including Transcendentalism, abolitionism, women's rights and temperance; Lowell later supported many of these ideas and grew to regret writing humorously at their expense[3]
  • George Pope Morris, The Deserted Bride and Other Poems, the first of numerous editions; includes the author's most popular poem, "Woodman, Spare That Tree!" (which had originally been published in the New York Mirror 1830)[3]
  • John Greenleaf Whittier, Poems, expanded edition of the unauthorized work published in 1837[3]
