CHAPTER XIV
AMERICAN LITERATURE

Lowell's lyrics are only a small part of his work ; for he took the place of Longfellow at Harvard, he edited reviews, wrote admirably on literary and political subjects, delivered addresses and poems, the noble Commemoration Ode ranking highest of all, and was Minister, first to Spain, and then to England.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, 1809-1894. Holmes was born at Cambridge, Massachusetts, and so naturally went to Harvard. The year after he graduated the order was given to break up the old battleship Constitution. Then it was that he wrote Old Ironsides, pleading for its preservation, with lsso. such good effect that the Secretary of the Navy revoked his order. Holmes was twenty-one ; he decided to be a physician ; but, as he said, "The man who has tasted type is sure to return to his old indulgence sooner or later," and he had hardly taken his degree before the publishers were advertising a volume of his poems. Here were My Aunt, The September Gale, and, best of all, The Last Leaf, the verses that one reads with a smile on the lips and tears in the eyes.
The young physician's practice did not occupy much of his time, but soon an invitation came to teach anatomy at Dartmouth ; and, a few years later, to teach the same subject at Harvard. Holmes was successful ; for, with all his love of literature, he had a genuine devotion to his profession.
In 1857 a new magazine was to be started, and Lowell was asked if he would be its editor. He replied, "Yes, if Dr Holmes can be the first contributor to be engaged." Dr Holmes became not only the first contributor, but he named
