Meet the Author

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (February 27, 1807 – March 24, 1882) was an American poet and educator whose works include "Paul Revere's Ride", The Song of Hiawatha, and Evangeline. He was also the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy and was one of the five Fireside Poets.

Longfellow was born in Portland, Maine, then part of Massachusetts, and studied at Bowdoin College. After spending time in Europe he became a professor at Bowdoin and, later, at Harvard College. His first major poetry collections were Voices of the Night (1839) and Ballads and Other Poems (1841). Longfellow retired from teaching in 1854 to focus on his writing, living the remainder of his life in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in a former headquarters of George Washington. His first wife Mary Potter died in 1835 after a miscarriage. His second wife Frances Appleton died in 1861 after sustaining burns when her dress caught fire. After her death, Longfellow had difficulty writing poetry for a time and focused on his translation. He died in 1882.

Longfellow wrote predominantly lyric poems, known for their musicality and often presenting stories of mythology and legend. He became the most popular American poet of his day and also had success overseas. He has been criticized, however, for imitating European styles and writing specifically for the masses.

    Do NOT buy! This book stinks.

    This book has no index. If you're looking for a specific poem, you have to know which of Longfellow's books it was originally published in, then page through the book until you happen to stumble across the poem. If you don't know the original book, you must page through 1,217 locations looking for the poem. There is no excuse for publishing an ebook containing hundreds of poems without including an index.

    Also, in the introduction to "The Children's Own Longfellow," the book mentions that the publisher included eight color illustration which are not in the book; not even in black and white.

    I want my money back!

    There are several other ebooks of Longfellow's poems that include indexes and deliver what they promise. That being the case, there is simply no reason to buy this book.

    Do NOT buy this book!
