This vintage book contains Charles Hanson Towne's 1909 poem, "Manhattan". Charles Hanson Towne (1877-1949) was an American poet, author, editor, and popular figure New York society. He wrote many books of verse, plays, essays, song cycles, memoirs, literary columns, travel essays, and operettas. His career started at the remarkably early age of 11, when he became the 'publisher' of the Unique Monthly, a magazine designed for children and created by Towne and his friends. "Manhattan" is a fantastic example of Towne's unique poetic style, constituting a must-read for all poetry lovers and fans of Towne's seminal work. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
