As a lover of great rhyme poetry, and in particular, a fan of Henry
Wadsworth Longfellow's poetry - I was glad to finally find that a
""Complete Works"" volume was available. If (like me) you are a
lover of Longfellow's classy and distinctive verse style, then of
course there is no faulting the actual content of this book - from
his most famous works to his most obscure..it's all here
Another fine feature of this book is the brief introductions
that give historical and/or background information as to
what/where/who inspired Longfellow to write a particular poem
(although these intros are not given for every poem in the book,
but mainly for the more critically-renowned & famous ones).
My rating? Five stars for Longfellow's thoughtful and
imaginative work with rhyme, rhythm, and imagery.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is known as one of America's best
known and best loved poets of all time. The Complete Poetical
Works, covers I believe, everything ever writteb by this exquisite
You will find your most treasured and well-loved favorites, as
well as the most obscure findings in this brilliant collection.
This is a ""must-have"" for all fans of Longfellow and his
It'(mostly) lyric style poetry with a rhyming rhythm that is
sure to bring memories back to long-time followers of Longfellow
and new poetry lovers as well. He writes with an easy to understand
method and obvious themes, these poems come back to me just as easy
as some of my favorite mother goose stories, childhood songs, and
I can honestly, without reserve, recommend this book to all who
love Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, American Poetry and Poets.
