Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Chapter 12: voices of the night (search)
Thomas Holley Chivers of Georgia, author of Eonchs of Ruby, a man of whom Bayard Taylor wrote in 1871, speaking of that period thirty years earlier, that something wonderful would come out of Chivers. Passages from the Correspondence of Rufus W. Griswold, p. 46. It is certain that things wonderful came out of him at the very beginning, for we owe to him the statement that as the irradiancy of a diamond depends upon its diaphanous translucency, so does the beauty of a poem upon its rhythmicant as the Spanish poet, who calls a star a burning doubloon of the celestial bank ? North American Review, XXXIV. 75. It is a curious fact that this exuberant poet Chivers claimed a certain sympathy Passages from the Correspondence of Rufus W. Griswold, p. 46. with the Boston Dial and with the transcendental movement, which had a full supply of its own extravagances; and it is clear that between these two rhetorical extremes there was needed a voice for simplicity. Undoubtedly Bryant had

notices of Longfellow's Poems on Slavery, but there is no immediate evidence of any personal relations between them at that time. In a letter to Poe, dated at Elmwood June 27, 1844, Lowell says of a recent article in the Foreign Quaterly Review attributed to John Forster, Forster is a friend of some of the Longfellow clique here, which perhaps accounts for his putting L. at the top of our Parnassus. These kinds of arrangements do very well, however, for the present. Correspondence of R. W. Griswold, p. 151. . . . It will be noticed that what Lowell had originally called a set has now become a clique. It is also evident that he did not regard Longfellow as the assured head of the American Parnassus, and at any rate he suggests some Possible rearrangement for the future. Their real friendship seems to have begun with a visit by Longfellow to Lowell's study on October 29, 1846, when the conversation turned chiefly on the slavery question. Longfellow called to see him again on the

selections, perhaps in connection with an annual then edited by him and called The Diadem. Professor Norton, as one of the most cultivated Americans, might naturally be asked for some such counsel. In replying he sent Mr. Furness, under date of January 7, 1845, a list of fifty-four eligible authors, among whom Emerson stood last but one, while Longfellow was not included at all. He then appended a supplementary list of twenty-four minor authors, headed by Longfellow. Correspondence of R. W. Griswold, p. 162. We have already seen Lowell, from a younger point of view, describing Longfellow, at about this time, as the head of a clique, and we now find Andrews Norton, from an older point of view, assigning him only the first place among authors of the second grade. It is curious to notice, in addition, that Hawthorne stood next to Longfellow in this subordinate roll. Longfellow published two volumes of poetic selections, The Waif (1845) and The Estray (1846), the latter title being
