Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (born February 27, 1807 – died March 24, 1882) was an American poet of the Romantic period. He served as a professor at Harvard University and was an adept linguist, traveling throughout Europe and immersing himself in European culture and poetry, which he emulated in his poetry.

Book Review

By Richard Edward Noble

I decided to reacquaint myself with Henry Wadsworth Longfellow because of a remark I read in another book. It was commented in this other reading that Henry in his day was America's most read and beloved poet and eventually supported himself on his poetry.

I truly admire any poet who has been able to make a living writing poetry. I only know of a few: Robert Service, Rod Mckuen, Rudyard Kipling, possibly Ogden Nash, John Milton - most poets had a day job. They have traditionally been school teachers or college professors, ministers and preachers.

Walt Whitman is a typical sad story of a struggling poet - so too is Edgar Allen Poe. So when I read someone who actually made a living at that art, I am curious to say the least. All else said to the contrary they must have had something.

I sent for this nice little volume. The book itself is very nice with one of those little "strings" to mark the pages - like in a bible.

I've read the entire book aloud. I enjoy reading poetry aloud. I read my poetry aloud at bed time. My wife takes out her hearing aids and is snoring while I'm inflecting and projecting to my heart's content.
This is a wonderful collection with lots of old favorites ... Paul Revere's Ride, Song of Hiawatha, The Courtship of Miles Standish, The Village Blacksmith and The Wreck of the Hesperus. But since I never sat down before and read a whole volume of Longfellow there were many that I had never read or heard. The Children's Hour is famous but I had never read it before - also The Cross of Snow - two very beautiful poems.

The fact that Longfellow was so popular back in 1888 leads me to think that Americans, on the average, must have been much more intelligent than those mulling around us today. It is a complement to the population of that era that they chose to make this man comfortable in his old age by purchasing his lovely poetry with their hard earned pennies, nickels and dimes.

Longfellow was an historian. Much of his writing is historical. He is also clearly a classical poet - writing in the tradition of Dante, Milton, Edmund Spenser and the like. His poetry is excellent. It sings. Get this volume and read it out loud to yourself (or to someone else, for that matter. It is wonderful. You don't have to understand every line - just listen to it.

He also seemed to be a very nice man - one whose life I intend to explore more deeply.

This was a great compilation of poetry. Longfellow is very descriptive and clear in his communication. He paints a colorful picture and his rhymes have a pleasant sound. He has beautiful descriptions of nature and has compelling narratives, as can be seen in the classic poem, "Evangeline."

He hits on themes that are relateable for any reader. A line from "A Psalm of Life" was referenced at my high school graduation.

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time;

Longfellow was one of the great masters. His imagery was vivid and compelling. His poetry is uplifting, poignant, and inspirational. I thoroughly enjoyed this compilation.
