In the years between 1880 and 1950, Americans recited poetry at family gatherings, school assemblies, church services, camp outings, and civic affairs. This book presents a portrait of the uses of verse in America. It shows how the sites and practices of reciting poetry influenced readers' lives and helped them to find meaning in a poet's words.
