Sonnets

from Uncollected Prose, Dial Essays 1843

Sonnets and other Poems. By WILLIAM LLOYD GARRISON. Boston. 1843. pp. 96.

Mr. Garrison has won his palms in quite other fields than those of the lyric muse, and he is far more likely to be the subject than the author of good poems. He is rich enough in the earnestness and the success of his character to be patient with the very rapid withering of the poetic garlands he has snatched in passing. Yet though this volume contains little poetry, both the subjects and the sentiments will everywhere command respect. That piece in the volume, which pleased us most, was the address to his first-born child.
