Reviews - What do our customers think?
Romantic gem for the untainted  Apr 11, 2010
Longfellow appears to be one of those poets afflicted with a severe case of schoolcurriculumnitis. My regrets!

You know the disease - in the upper echelons of high school you are fed a safe selection of poems and novellas (actual novels of course being too unwieldy for the teacher) and then asked to analyse the living daylights outta 'em. Needless to say you are put off these cursed authors for life.

Coming from a different language, no one ever tried to poison the Longfellow well for me so I find this late-romantic poetry quite enjoyable. 'Evangeline' was a bit too saccharine but 'The Courtship of Miles Standish' was moving, as was 'John Endicott'.

Annoying as always are my friends over at Penguin who, after all these years, still manage to put out a book that looks aged before even being read. After perusing it it is it ripe for a stoop sale. I know it's cheap but can't you do better? Pretty please?
 
Longfellow  Aug 23, 2009
I wanted a book of Longfellow poems and this is the best compact miscellany on the market
 
Where have you gone, Mr. Longfellow?  Feb 7, 2005
Longellow is the poet of the American public school. 'Evangeline' 'The Courtship of Miles Standish' 'Paul Revere's Ride' ' The Village Blacksmith' ' 'A Psalm of life' and others. His reputation in the nineteenth century was great and overwhelming. Yet his reputation in the realm of poetry today is not with those artists of the canon, Tennyson and Browning in England, and Whitman and Dickinson in the United States. Perhaps it is because his poems are taken to be not inventive enough linguistically. Perhaps it is because the very thing many have praised him for his musicality seems today to be less than the irregular music of a Hopkins or Dylan Thomas.
In any case in Longfellow one will find sound solid lines, a certain moral stance , a kind of American integrity. For someone like myself reading Longfellow is a nostalgic trip and a new perspective on what I read so long ago. He has much to give even if it is not quite at the highest poetic level.
 
you want it you got it  Jan 26, 2000
I love this book it is something that men and women would enjoy. I have tons of information on Henry Wadsworth Longfellow because our house is a remake of his he lived from 1807-1882. If I were you I would buy it I am the biggest fan of his I have every single book of poems,songs,and more on him in paperback and hardcover. Buy it!
 
The best introduction to one of America's best loved poets.  Nov 9, 1998
When I was producing a video biography of Longfellow for Macmillan/McGraw-Hill in 1992, I needed a one-volume selection of Longfellow's poetry, and this book did the job very nicely. It includes Longfellow's best-known poems as well as two others that were never published during the poet's lifetime but must be classed with his finest work. The introduction by Lawrence Buell provides a useful biographical sketch and a thoughtful discussion of why Longfellow--the most famous American of his time--is not more widely read today. Buell's observations may get you thinking about this schoolbook poet in a different way.
