JW Riley recalled as favorite in Arkansas - Northwest Arkansas News

Monday, July 25, 2016

Unlike Mark Twain, Edgar Allen Poe, Herman Melville, W.H. Auden and Ernest Hemingway, James Whitcomb Riley (1849-1916) does not have a "verified" page on Facebook.Perhaps we should wonder why those other definitely dead writers require social media or why Papa's page has a "Get Hemingway alerts!" button, but let's don't. Instead let's think about Riley, who, 100 years ago today, was eulogized by the editor of the Arkansas Gazette."James Whitcomb Riley, the Hoosier Poet, whose art lent beauty to commonplace things, and whose poetry appealed to everyday folk, is dead, mourned by thousands throughout the United States," the editorialist wrote July 25, 1916. (I think the editorial writer was the great J.N. Heiskell, then 33.) "Those who read but little and whose little reading comprises a mite of poetry know Riley and love him."One may get an idea of his popularity from local booksellers, who will tell one that his poems have a greater sale in Little Rock than those of any other poet."Riley loved the life around him and he could ma...
