Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was the first American poet to successfully express the subjects and sentiments of the New World in classic old-world form and style. While his narrative poems have long been a part of our national heritage, and his sonnets, with their superb melodies and harmonies, are among the finest American poems in the Romantic tradition.
The distinguished modern poet Horace Gregory has selected more than three dozen of Longfellows most enduring poems for this edition, which offers a perceptive insight into the many facets of Longfellows genius.
With a Preface by Edward M. Cifelli Ph.D., an Introduction by Horace Gregory, and a New Afterword
