"Longfellow wrote several poems in [the supernatural] vein: 'The Haunted Chamber' (from 'Birds of Passage'), 'The Beleaguered City,' 'Two Angels,' 'Haunted Houses,' and 'The Phantom Ship.' His poems skillfully move from spectral specifics towards generalizations about humans and life -- rare in this genre, but welcome." - Tymn, ed., Horror Literature, p. 417. "The Two Angels," "Haunted Houses," and "The Phantom Ship" are collected in the present volume. Shallow chip from upper spine end, a very good, bright copy. (#133142).
