New Publication: "'Deceit only was forbidden': A Brief Literary Biography of Richard Henry Wilde"

Sun, 07/10/2016 - 9:08am
If you want a distraction from current politics, you can read my long essay in the summer issue of the New England Review. It's about Richard Henry Wilde (1789-1847), a nineteenth-century Congressman and poet who opposed Andrew Jackson's monetary policy and lost his bid for reelection amid accusations of plagiarism. It's a story about deception, hypocrisy, poetry, slavery, and the power of gold.
