African American self-published poet from Missouri whose work attempts to mimic classical British poetry with a heavy reliance on the term "mine" as in "mine own true love" yet he has at least one poem on the assassination of MLK that, though raw and undisciplined shows some power. The letter is offering the Bookshop two copies in hopes that they will carry the booklet and send him addresses of NYC publiching houses, Self-published by the author, RareBooksClub. Paperback. New.

Excerpt: . . . her claymore indignantly draws; When her bonneted chieftains to victory crowd, Clanronald the dauntless, and Moray the proud, All plaided and plumed in their tartan array. --L0chiels Warning. 2. Classical Finish-Correctness. In his Pleasures of Hope, the long poem that first made him famous, and in most of his other poetry except half a dozen martial songs, Campbell manifests an almost slavish subservience to the literary traditions established by Pope and his school. Gosse remarks that when Campbell wrote The Pleasures of Hope he had evidently seen no poetry more modern than that of Johnson, Goldsmith, and Rogers. . . . It was a tame, correct essay in a mode already entirely outw0rn. Hazlitt, on the other hand, praises Campbells fastidious refinement and classic elegance. Mr. Campbell conceives himself called upon, continues Hazlitt, (in these days of critical nicety) to pay exact attention to the expression of each thought and to modulate each line into the most faultless harmony. . . . He seeks for perfection, and nothing evidently short of it can satisfy his mind. . . . , There are passages in Gertrude of Wyoming of so rare and ripe a beauty that they challenge, as they exceed, all praise. Jeffrey calls Gertrude of Wyoming a polished and pathetic poem in the old style of English pathos and poetry. . . . It belongs to a class which comes near to our conception of pure and perfect poetry. Minto calls this predilection of Campbell for correct composition the habit of elevated and elaborate expression formed at the University in accordance with the literary. . .
