Abraham Lincoln (Penguin Lives) Hardcover – Import 30 Dec 2002
Product Description From Booklist The ever-popular Keneally who previously depicted bad-boy Union general Daniel Sickles in American Scoundrel [BKL F 1 02] lends his talented pen to the publisher's series of 180-page biographies. The subject of Lincoln has been thoroughly mined yet this author's skill at characterization reveals a new angle: a sensitive discernment of Lincoln's anxieties. Although Lincoln's depression is an old chestnut with Lincoln writers not many crystallize it like this: "No man ever entered Springfield a town that would become his shrine as tentative odd-seeming and daunted as Abraham Lincoln." The sentence expresses the hesitancy with which Lincoln entered the marriage he made in that town and Keneally regularly touches on Mary Todd's caprices in passages about Lincoln's political career which his wife keenly promoted. This emphasis on Lincoln's worries also marks the description of his youth his casting about as boatman storekeeper and surveyor--seeking anything but the subsistence farming that he grew up in and loathed. Keneally succinctly and insightfully presents a humanized Lincoln. Gilbert Taylor Copyright © American Library Association.
