Abraham Lincoln measured the promise--and cost--of American freedom in lucid and extraordinarily moving prose, famous for its native wit, simple dignity of expressions, and peculiarly American flavor. This volume, with its companion, Abraham Lincoln: Speeches and Writing 1859-1865, comprises the most comprehensive selection ever published. over 240 speeches, letters, and drafts take Lincoln from rural law practice to national prominence, and chart his emergence as an eloquent antislavery advocate and defender of the constitution. included are the complete Lincoln-Douglas debates, perhaps the most famous confrontation in American political history. LIBRARY OF AMERICA is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation's literary heritage by publishing, and keeping permanently in print, America's best and most significant writing. The Library of America series includes more than 300 volumes to date, authoritative editions that average 1,000 pages in length, feature cloth covers, sewn bindings, and ribbon markers, and are printed on premium acid-free paper that will last for centuries.… (més)

To me, the key parts of this book are the Lincoln-Douglas debates. Sure, you can read the transcripts on the internet, but it is much easier to read them in a book. No one speaks like that today, and maybe they should.

Could you imagine having political debates like that today? Candidate A speaks for an hour, then Candidate B speaks for an hour and a half, and finally Candidate A rebuts for half an hour. People sure had more patience then.

As far as I'm concerned, this is not a book to "start" or "finish"; I read rather selectively, as I come across references to or quotes from Lincoln's early speeches and letters. Reading the entire speech or letter is very well worth while rather than just depending on a memorable quote such as the one for "a house divided against itself". Lincoln was an excellent writer, who worked hard on his speeches, and it shows.

This volume is a collection of speeches and letters from the 26 years before Lincoln became President, and clearly illuminates the evolution of his thinking as well as showing a core consistency in his philosophy. Highly recommended.

The Library of America edition is a beautiful one. ( )

A good selection of primary source material that illuminates for the reader Lincoln's rhetorical development. Written with 19th century cadences and language, it may try the patience of some modern readers. But close attention pays off with a deeper appreciation of Lincoln's intellectual and oratorical gifts. Few if any contemporary politicians or speech writers measure up to the standard set here. ( )
