University of New Hampshire Library: Literature & Poetry

The University of New Hampshire Library has a range of interesting digital collections, including correspondence from Civil War soldiers, town reports, and intercollegiate athletics. This particular area of the collection focuses on work related to unique literature and poetry items in the library's holdings. Perhaps the most curious item in the collection is the poem "The Boy Made of Meat" by Pulitzer Prize winner W.D. Snodgrass. The poem was drafted in 1962, and 20 years later, the artist Gillian Tyler decided to publish a limited edition of the work, complete with wood engravings. This item can be viewed in its entirety here, and it's a good place to start. The collection also contains several different volumes of works for children, including Edwin Erle Sparks' "A Book of Famous Explorers" and "Gritili's children: a story for children and for those who love children" by Johanna Spyri, who is best known for writing "Heidi." The site is rounded out by its collection of past issues of "The Granite Monthly," a magazine "devoted to literature, history, and state progress."
