WALKING WITH ELIHU: POEMS ON ELIHU BURRITT, THE LEARNED BLACKSMITH�by
TAYLOR GRAHAM�featured this week in the PSH Bookstore
TAYLOR GRAHAM's poetry captures the life of an exceptional man of the
nineteenth century. Elihu Burritt, born into a poor Connecticut
family,�was acclaimed "The Learned Blacksmith" by the Governor of
Massachusetts when it was discovered he had mastered 50 foreign
languages�while working at the forge. Corresponding with Longfellow
and others, Elihu Burritt became one of the most ardent peace
activists in his�century, helping organize international peace
congresses, campaigning for a Congress of Nations, international law,
and a World Court. Born�nearly 200 years ago, he was well ahead of
his time. President Lincoln appointed him Consular Agent to
Birmingham, England. In her�inimitable style, poet Taylor Graham,
portrays Burritt's passion for peace and the betterment of man's
condition in 94 beautiful poems. This is�truly poetry for history.
