Tredway Library

Spring Term Display and Events:  The Civil War Project

During the 150th anniversary of the Civil War (1861-1865), the Tredway Library joins other people and institutions across the country in commemorating this central event in American history. Augustana's Civil War Project will explore how some of the greatest poets of the 20th century created art out of cataclysm and devastation.

On Display:

"The Beat of Civil War Poetry"
Library, 2nd floor

Highlighting 19th century volumes from Special Collections, this display features the poets of the Civil War, such as Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, James Russell Lowell, John Greenleaf Whittier, Herman Melville, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Alongside the books, the display includes representative poems. In addition to a timeline of the war, the exhibit features photographs of the noted Civil War photographers Mathew Brady and Alexander Gardner. To complement Civil War-era poetry, the display includes 20th century poems of witness studied by students in Professor Rebecca Wee's Senior Inquiry Seminar.

Reading and Music:

"An Evening with Emily & Walt"
Centennial Hall Stage
Thursday, March 27, 2014
7:00 p.m.

Students and faculty collaborate in bringing the Civil War poetry of Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, and others alive through readings and song.


"Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and the Civil War: Inventing the Poetry of Mass Death"
Presented by Ed Folsom, Roy J. Carver Professor of English, University of Iowa
Wallenberg Hall
Wednesday, April 2, 2014
7:00 p.m.

How is it possible to make poetry out of the pain and grief brought on by mass death? This lecture explores how America's two most innovative nineteenth-century poets, Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson, became the first to wrest an art out of the horrific experience of the Civil War, and how the work of photographers Mathew Brady and Alexander Gardner represented mass death and influenced Whitman and Dickinson.
