I picked up this collection of Longfellow's poetry because I SHOULD know more about one of America's all-time greatest poets. I write poetry; I love dissecting poetry; I SHOULD know more about Longfellow.

While reading, I came to know his clear and entertaining style. I came to appreciate how he can "spin yarn" (tell stories) effectively and efficiently. Whether he is writing in rhyme or in meter, he has the right word coming forth.

This collection contains one poem that is over 30 pages long. Other poems are much shorter, usually 1-2 pages in length. All these works are worth reading. The breadth of topics covered is quite impressive. Longfellow obviously had a supple and fertile mind and life. I can envy that he was able to make a life from poetry.

I am inspired to read more of his classic works. I gave this present work four stars instead of five because of what it omits. This collection contains his famous poem about Paul Revere, but misses some other classics such as The Song of Hiawatha and Evangeline. I am likewise inspired to read his poems on slavery as this is a particular interest of mine. ( )

A brief but complete compilation of poems to get to know Longfellow.
I loved "The courtship of Miles Standish" and his nostalgic recollections of lost times and youth. Very sensitive and solemn, good to be aware of the earth beneath your feet. ( )

I never understood the need for poetry and I have always had trouble with reading the written poetic forms but I sure do like Mr. Longfellow's storytelling. ( )
