3/24/1882     Twain Burned By Longfellow Roast
On this day in 1882 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow died, at the age of seventy-five. Longfellow was the most popular, venerated and taught American poet of his day. Such a pedestal invited comedy, or so Mark Twain thought until he tried to satirize Longfellow, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Oliver Wendell Holmes before a crowd of their fans.

On Translating the Divina Commedia
Four sonnets published by The Atlantic Monthly in the 1860s. An excerpt from Sonnet IV:

    Ah! from what agonies of heart and brain,
    What exultations trampling on despair,
    What tenderness, what tears, what hate of wrong,
    What passionate outcry of a soul in pain,
    Uprose this poem of the earth and air,
    This medieval miracle of song!
