To Fight Aloud is Very Brave

On the heels of Chris’s recent series on Civil War-related literature, we thought we’d pass along a link sent to us about a new book, To Fight Aloud is Very Brave by Faith Barrett. Barrett argues “a broad range of 19th-century writers used verse during the Civil War to negotiate complicated territory, both personal and public” and that “Civil War poetry was much more formally destabilizing [to poetry] than scholars have traditionally acknowledged.”

The article comes fromĀ Poetry magazine, which is published by the National Poetry Foundation.

  1. Have you heard of a new book published recently entitled: “The Untried Life: The 29th Ohio Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War” by James T. Fritsch. Jim is the husband of my cousin Gayl Howell and they live in Arizona. Jim has spent about 10 years researching for the 1st edition. Just an FYI, thanks. Lynda Baer
