At one time, he practiced law, but later devoted himself entirely to writing. He began his career with Thanatopsis (or View of Death), a boyhood piece which astonished America when it was published in 1817, and which has ever since been a favorite with readers. The idea of the poem, that the earth is a vast sepulcher of human life, was borrowed from other poets- but the stately blank verse and the noble appreciation of nature are Bryants own. The Flood of Years was written when he was a sage of eighty. Among the Trees is one of his best nature poems. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
