CHAPTER XIV
AMERICAN LITERATURE

that, to be alone with Nature, he buried himself in the woods on the margin of a little lake-Walden Pond-not far from Concord, Massachusetts. For two years he lived here in his hut, watching to see when the first bluebird appeared, and how the little twigs changed in colour at the coming of the spring, and learning the ways of the wild things that had their homes in the trees and the rocks and the rivers ; and all the time, besides watching, he was making notes in his diary, so that a few years later he was able to give to the world the charming account of it -Walden, or Life in the Woods ( 1854), by which he afterwards became famous.
In the middle and later half of the nineteenth century there was a little group of historical writers in the United States, at least four of whom did lasting, and literary, work. These were George Baneroft, 1800-1891, William Hickling Prescott,1796-1859, John Lothrop Motley, 1814-1877, and Francis Parkman, 1823-1893. They were all Harvard men, and two of them, Bancroft and Motley, were United States Ambassadors to Great Britain.
Bancroft's chief work is the monumental History of the United States. This appeared in ten volumes at various intervals between 1834 and 1874, and will for many years to come be the chief and invaluable authority on that subject.
The work by which Motley will be remembered is The Rise of the Dutch Republic, published in three volumes in 1856. Motley was in London at this time-he spent most of his life away from his native land-and as he could get no publisher to undertake the risk of his book he published it at his own expense. Its success with scholars and the general public alike
