Product Description

Unity is most challenged where it is most diverse. With adaptations from the writings of familiar figures of American history, such as Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee, intermingled with the works of popular and lesser-known American poets, this anthology attempts to explore the history of this nation’s diverse character through the lens of its poetry. From the American Revolution, to the Alamo, through the Civil War, to the Indian Wars, and then on to the Great War, an assortment of American voices are heard. Included are various ballads, sonnets, a villanelle, and free verse poems, as well as the earliest version of Emily Dickinson’s "Success Is Counted Sweetest,” first published in 1864. Opportunity Begins with Unity is a brief poetic journey through the early history of the American attitudes and visions that led us to where we now stand, with the hopes that it might aid us as we move forward into the bright future which we all desire. Diversity is strongest where it is most united.
