Eliza R. Snow is without a doubt one of the most monu-mental figures in early LDS history. Her influence and accomplishments are many: she served as the first secretary and second General President of the Relief Society, helped organized the Primary Association, and served as president of the board of directors of the Deseret Hospital Association. Today she is best remembered as a poet, with nearly 500 poems to her credit. This is the second of two volumes highlighting the most significant published poems of Eliza R. Snow, beginning with the exodus from Nauvoo in 1846, and continuing through 1881. Included are the favorite hymns "Behold the Great Redeemer Die" and "How Great the Wisdom and the Love," along with lesser-known poems such as "Bury Me Quietly When I Die," and the controversial "Ultimatum of Human Life," here printed under its original title "Instructions of the Priesthood." The importance of these poems lies not only in their historical significance, but in the opportunity they afford to obtain insights into the life and mind of one of the truly great women in the early Mormon Church.

Displays of devout religious faith are very much in evidence in nineteenth-century sentimental novels such as Uncle Tom's Cabin and Little Women, but the precise theological nature of this piety has been little examined. In the first dedicated study of the religious contents of sentimental literature, Claudia Stokes counters the long-standing characterization of sentimental piety as blandly nondescript and demonstrates that these works were in fact groundbreaking, assertive, and highly specific in their theological recommendations and endorsements. The Altar at Home explores the many religious contexts and contents of sentimental literature of the American nineteenth century, from the growth of Methodism in the Second Great Awakening and popular millennialism to the developing theologies of Mormonism and Christian Science. Through analysis of numerous contemporary religious debates, Stokes demonstrates how sentimental writers, rather than offering simple depictions of domesticity, instead manipulated these scenes to advocate for divergent new beliefs and bolster their own religious authority. On the one hand, the comforting rhetoric of domesticity provided a subtle cover for sentimental writers to advance controversial new beliefs, practices, and causes such as Methodism, revivalism, feminist theology, and even the legitimacy of female clergy. On the other hand, sentimentality enabled women writers to bolster and affirm their own suitability for positions of public religious leadership, thereby violating the same domestic enclosure lauded by the texts. The Altar at Home offers a fascinating new historical perspective on the dynamic role sentimental literature played in the development of innumerable new religious movements and practices, many of which remain popular today.

Eliza Roxcy Snow (1804-1887) was one of the most important and influential first-generation members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served as the second President of the Relief Society from the time of its reestablishment in 1866 to her death. She was a plural wife to both Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, and the older sister of Lorenzo Snow. Snow's most enduring legacy is as a poet; she is frequently referred to as "Zion's Poetess." Of the hundreds of poems she wrote over the course of her life, the single most loved is the hymn, O My Father, which was the first open promulgation of the doctrine of a Mother in Heaven within Mormonism. This book is in the Deseret Alphabet, a phonetic alphabet for writing English developed in the mid-19th century at the University of Deseret (now the University of Utah).

Walt Whitman has long been regarded as the quintessential American bard, the poet who best represents all that is distinctive about life in the United States. Whitman himself encouraged this view, but he was also quick to remind his readers that he was an unlikely candidate for the office of national poet, and that his working-class upbringing and radical take on human sexuality often put him at odds with American culture. While American literary history has tended to credit Whitman with having invented the persona of the national outsider as the national bard, Edward Whitley recovers three of Whitman's contemporaries who adopted similar personae: James M. Whitfield, an African American separatist and abolitionist; Eliza R. Snow, a Mormon pioneer and women's leader; and John Rollin Ridge, a Cherokee journalist and Native-rights advocate. These three poets not only provide a counterpoint to the Whitmanian persona of the outsider bard, but they also reframe the criteria by which generations of scholars have characterized Whitman as America's poet. This effort to resituate Whitman's place in American literary history provides an innovative perspective on the most familiar poet of the United States and the culture from which he emerged.

Jennifer Travis and Jessica DeSpain present a long-overdue collection of theoretical perspectives and case studies aimed at teaching nineteenth-century American literature using digital humanities tools and methods. Scholars foundational to the development of digital humanities join educators who have made digital methods central to their practices. Together they discuss and illustrate how digital pedagogies deepen student learning. The collection's innovative approach allows the works to be read in any order. Dividing the essays into five sections, Travis and DeSpain curate conversations on the value of project-based, collaborative learning; examples of real-world assignments where students combine close, collaborative, and computational reading; how digital humanities aids in the consideration of marginal texts; the ways in which an ethics of care can help students organize artifacts; and how an activist approach affects debates central to the study of difference in the nineteenth century.
