GREAT AMERICAN AUTHORS
OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES

then tool: up the study of medicine. He became skilled in this profession, and for thirty-five years held a professorship in the Harvard Medical School. During all this time, however, he was doling much writing. He is loved for the poems which through a long life he wrote for special occasions like class reunions, centennials, birthdays, and for the witty prose in which he wrote of conversations with a professor and a poet at their breakfast table.
His was an interesting life, filled with laughter and wit and never-flagging spirits. Holmes wrote of some humorous verses he had given to his servant, who laughed so violently as he read them that he burst off all his buttons and then fell down in a fit. He wrote of his ancient maiden aunt, who trained her winter curls in such a spring-like way. And in the poem "Contentment," page 411, he wrote jokingly about his "simple" desires, such as a fine house, dinners of three courses, a bit of bank-stock, a few jewels, a good horse or two, some rare books, -and the like.
But he was not always in fun when he wrote. He could be serious, too, and even stern if necessary. He was very much in earnest when he wrote the stirring patriotic poem, "Lexington," which forms a fitting climax to this book.
For many years Holmes wrote poems for the annual reunions of his Harvard class. The last of this series of poems was written sixty years after the graduation of the famous class.
There is little time to speak of Holmes as a delightful companion, of the wit and charm of his prose stories and sketches, of his skill as a teacher, and his fame as a scientist. You will learn of these things as you grow older. He lived a long and useful life in which he made happier and better the lives of all those who came in touch with him and his writings.
