'American Folk Poetry' carries with it the music, grace, wit and sadness of the American language, set in rhyme and verse. The songs, poems and ballards in these pages deal with everything that touches the lives of Americans. They are songs of woodsmen, farmers, cowboys, sailors, fishermen and miners; songs of love and death, war and marriage; songs of all groups - whites, blacks, American Indians, immigrants. They range from Child ballards to indigenous spirituals, square dance calls to blues, lullabies to sea chanties - all united by the deep flowing richness of the American oral tradition. 'American Folk Poetry' has been edited by Duncan Emrich. His graceful, perceptive commentaries enrich the text throughout, giving us a book at once scholarly and a delight to read. From the 1000+ volume private collection of well-known Australian poet and author Guy Weller all of which are listed or will soon be listed on this site. Includes many hardcover Collected Poems from sought-after 20th century poets from all countries.
