Annotation

An appallingly bad, and long poem about a eutopia inside the Earth. Democratic. No pride. No display. Ultimately the worlds of interior and exterior join under a constitution similar to that of the U. S. In the “Introduction” (iii-iv), the author writes that his purpose is to “inculcate the love of civil and religious liberty,–of peace and mercy,–of temperance” (iii).
