Books Info:

The Wind, the Rain, and the Night free pdf Godey's Lady's Book was one of the most widely circulated magazines in nineteenth century America. With Louis Godey as publisher and Sarah Josepha Hale as editor, the magazine became an American institution for over forty five years. Read by men and women alike, it boasted a subscriber list not only in every state and territory, but in foreign lands as well. Godey's is remembered today primarily for its fashion plates, but its readers found much more in it: each monthly issue included editorials, non-fiction, short stories, and poetry. This anthology series aims to collect and present some of the poetry found in Godey's and in Hale's earlier publication, the Ladies' Magazine. This current volume includes poems on the wind, the rain, and the night published in the two magazines between 1829 and 1874. Have our experiences of these things changed in the past two centuries? You be the judge. Other volumes in the Godey's poetry series to date include: In the Time of Mourning Death and Remembrance To the Sea Thoughts Sublime (sonnets) Love

About Deborah L Halliday

Deborah L Halliday, M.A., Ed.D., first became interested in Godey's poetry in the 1980s while she was working on a masters degree in American Studies at the University of Massachusetts-Boston. She began collecting bound volumes of the magazine and today has a collection that includes almost the entire run of Godey's and of Hale's earlier publication, the Ladies' Magazine. This volume of Godey's poetry is the result of her many hours spent page turning, reading, and prospecting for forgotten poems in the books' old dusty pages. She thinks it was worth it.
