    • Lectures on Poetry, a series of four lectures given at the New York Athenaeum, presenting his theory of poetry, influenced by English Romantic poets; he also objected to the ideas that America lacked poetic material, that the country's language was too primitive for poetry and that American society was too pragmatic and materialistic to support a national poetry[4]

  • Charles Follen, Hymns for Children[5]
  • Fitz-Greene Halleck, "Marco Bozzaris", inspired by the death of Bozarris, a Greek hero in the war of independence against the Ottoman Empire; the work appeared in several periodicals and was praised, although Edgar Allan Poe criticized it as lacking in lyricism[4]
