The aspects which the strife as a memory assumes are as manifold as are the moods of involuntary meditation-moods variable and at times widely at variance. Yielding instinctively one after another to feelings not inspired from any one source exclusively and unmindful without purposing to be of consistency

Library Journal

After publishing five novels, some of which flourished and others that floundered, Melville turned his pen to poetry. Melville based his Civil War poems on firsthand experience, and rather than glorify battle, he depicts the horrors and the waste of it.
