Daily Dose

From Longfellow: Poems and Other Writings, selected and annotated by J. D. McClatchy


"Every reader has his first book. I mean to say, one book among all others, which in early youth first fascinates his imagination, and at once excites and satisfies the desires of his mind. To me this first book was the Sketch Book of Washington Irving."

From Address on the Death of Washington Irving
