I've got my grandfather's edition of 1918 the cover is padded and falling apart. I love it so much
My mother read this book to me when I was a young child. I often fell asleep memorizing Longfellow's poems. They still hold the same magic as then. "The Village Blacksmith" and "The Wreck of the Hesperus" remain my two favorites. Both are written in iambic tetrameter. Longfellow writes of life's everyday events revealing the majesty found in the simplest of acts. Every poetry lover should have a copy of this amazing volume.
Does Not have the Black/Night mode to read This is a great collection by Delphi !!! However the fact that you cannot read it in the Black/Night mode makes the whole effort of putting this compilation together Redundant !!!! This is true for all other Delphi Classics collections ( Dickinson, Wordsworth, Shakespeare , Bronte's , Austen etc.) Please do something about it for all those who have already purchased them.
I have a 1st edition of the complete works. The beauty of the tone of literature of this time is unforgettable. Hiawatha, The Quadroon Maiden, Paul Revere, are stunning works- read in the context of the times and the political statements of the period, and this is a volume that should be read more often.
I listened to an audio version of this and, while it was good poetry, I found myself getting bored with it. I think maybe it might have been better to study one poem per day, in an effort to gert more out of it. I enjoyed it, but it could've been better.
I have a first edition of this book that was well loved by a true fan of Longfellow. it is filled with original newspaper clippings about Longfellow and anything to do with his family makes the book an even more enjoyable experience.
great american poet modern poets could use a healthy dose of his optimism
This book has a lot of meaning in my life, as my middle name is Evangeline, I have always been proud of my middle name, because of this book, and what it symbolizes in my life.
The only poetry I've read that was refreshingly optimistic. But after a while, I longed for some dark Frost or Blake.
This edition was given to my Grandfather; Carl Campbell Price in 1920 in Dillon, MT by his mother: Elizabeth Sadler Price.
More towards 3 and half stars. A mixed bag, some I really liked and other I skipped completely over. I could happily pick this up again and flick through it.
I have the 1918 edition and love it. This is my favorite work of poetry. There is such depth, pain, and beauty in his words.
The Shelf: Accepted.
