"In 1879, Abram J. Ryan's name was a household name in the South, especially after the publication of his book Father Ryan's Poems. Republished a year later with a new title, Poems, Patriotic, Religious and Miscellaneous, and under the imprint of a Baltimore publisher with a national distribution network, it would go through forty editions until 1929. The two most important poems were "The Conquered Banner" (1865) and "The Sword of Robert Lee" (1866). These works were committed to memory by three generations of school children in the South until about the middle of the twentieth century. Margaret Mitchell, who knew them by heart, included Ryan as a character in GWTW because of her admiration for his work. Ryan was the editor of the Banner of the South, an anti-Reconstruction newspaper, in Augusta, Georgia, and popularized the term "Lost Cause". His outspoken views with regard to the policies of the federal government caused him to lose the support of the paper's owner, Bishop Verot of Savannah. When the paper was closed down, he moved to Mobile, Alabama, serving as a parish priest for ten years. He also spent three of these years (1872-1875) as the editor of the Catholic weekly of New Orleans, the Morning Star and Catholic Messenger. Until now, no one has been able to understand why Ryan left the quiet life of retirement in Mississippi to begin preaching around the country to raise money. Based on the study of the heretofore unknown correspondence between Ryan and two nuns in a Carmelite convent in New Orleans, Ryan became convinced that he could save his soul by devoting the last years of his life to paying off the mortgage on their convent. Tragically, he worked himself to death in this endeavor. This book is the first to place the Ryan story in its proper place."--Publisher's website.

My brow is bent beneath a heavy rod! My face is wan and white with many woes! But I will lift my poor chained hands to God, And for my children pray, and for my foes. From "The Prayer of the South" by Fr. Abram Ryan Father Abram Ryan served as a chaplain for the Confederate army during the Civil War, but was revered and admired by North and South alike. He felt a longing to participate in defending his homeland, but saw first hand the moral and physical destruction of war. He prayed fervently for a peaceful end to the conflict. This is his story, the story of his faithful service to God's children and his forgiving victory over the hate and cruelty that followed the war.

Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman were not the poetic stars of their day; only a few friends knew that Dickinson wrote, and Whitman's following was minuscule, if influential. But the contemporaries who eclipsed these major poets now have largely disappeared from our literary landscape. In this distinctive anthology, Robert Bain gathers together thirteen other scholars to re-present the poetry of these former luminaries, allowing readers to rediscover them, reconstruct the poetic contexts of their age, and better understand why Whitman and Dickinson now overshadow other poets of their time. Arranged chronologically according to the birth dates of the poets, this anthology introduces each poet's work, providing biographical information and discussing the major forms and themes of the work. Each introduction places the poet in a literary and historical context with Whitman and Dickinson and provides a bibliography of secondary sources. This remarkable book recovers a part of our literary heritage that has been lost.
