Excerpt from Lincoln: The Literary Genius

Wth these several characters of Lincoln's, I am not at the moment concerned. I want only to mark his ses quicentennial year by drawing attention to a Lincoln who is perhaps the oldest and deepest rooted and least thought of. The Lincoln I know and revere isa figure who should stand in our history - I will not say, in the place of, but beside all the others. No one need forget the golden legends, but anyone may find it rewarding to move them aside a little so as to get a glimpse of the unsuspected Lincoln I see so vividly before me.
