About this title


Excerpt from Poems

IT is not to avert the censures of so judicious a critic that I dedicate to you this collection of my poems. You were the first to praise my simple rhymes, years before I met or dreamed of meeting you and Since we became personally acquainted you have always been ready to counsel and encourage me in those literary pursuits to which I was led by the natural inclination of my mind, and which at too early an age, perhaps. I adopted as the prima pal means of hoped-for usefulness and happiness. I have been pleased, there fore, With the thought, that in such an inscription as this I might express something of my gratitude to you, and my respect for you. I know, indeed, that it 18 not an unusual distinction to have been an object of your kindly interest - that there are ma'ny among our younger authors who owe much to your wise advice and generous aid so that if all who are in this way your debtors were so to manifest their feelings. You would be wearied With such displays of their consideration; yet this is the only manner in which I can render you that homage which is due for your genius and worth. Especmlly from me, who am under so many obligations to you; and I feel assured that you Will receive my offering With as much satisfaction as if it conferred on you more than on myself a desuable honor.

About the Author:

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was born in 1807 in Portland, Maine, and he became a professor of modern languages at Harvard. His most famous narrative poems include "The Song of Hiawatha, Paul Revere's Ride", "The Village Blacksmith," "The Wreck of the Hesperus." From his friend Nathaniel Hawthorne, Longfellow got a brief outline of a story from which he composed one of his most favorite poems, "Evangeline." The original story had Evangeline wandering about New England in search of her bridegroom. One of the first poets to take the landscape and stories of North America as his subjects, Longfellow became immensely popular all over the world, and he was the first American commemorated in the Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey. He was given honorary degrees at the great universities of Oxford and Cambridge, invited to Windsor by Queen Victoria, and called by request upon the Prince of Wales. He was also chosen a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences
