Excerpt from The Early Poems of Oliver Wendell Holmes

The proposal of Mr. Douglas to print an edition of my Poems gave me much pleasure, and I feel confident that they will be printed correctly and handsomely. The reader may find fault with them, but I am sure he will find pleasure in the form in which they are presented to his eye.

I hope he will judge the Poems by the best among them, certainly not by the crude and immature products of the earlier period of the writer's life. If the reader is pleased with any of those here brought together, he may have some curiosity to see the gradations by which the Author reached the standard of those which he approves. If he made bad work of it in his early attempts, his improvement may encourage a young writer who is disheartened by his failures.

About the Author:

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841-1935) served as chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court and as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
