The Song of Hiawatha
Rich in imagery and detail, this exquisitely rendered picture book introduces readers to one of America's favorite classic poems, The Song of Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Illustrated by Susan Jeffers, the Caldecott-Honor winning author of "Three Jovial Huntsmen", "A Mother Goose Rhyme", this book beautifully weaves together oral traditions of American Indian culture and presents a charming and hypnotic account of Hiawatha's boyhood. 32 pages, softcover.
Evangeline and Other Poems
Included is the complete Evangeline as well as many of Wadsworth's other well-known poems; "The Skeleton in Armor," "The Arsenal at Springfield," "Mezzo Cammin," and "Aftermath."
Choice collection reflects the poet's mastery of a rich variety of poetic forms and meters. Included is one of his best narrative poems, The Courtship of Miles Standish, along with such famous works as "The Village Blacksmith," "The Wreck of the Hesperus," "The Children's Hour" and "Paul Revere's Ride." Reprinted from standard edition. Alphabetical lists of titles and first lines. Paperback, 85 pages.
A collection that restores Longfellow's reputation as an important and influential American poet. The most popular poet of his day, Longfellow has, unfortunately been discredited by posterity. This generous sampling of his work will give modern-day readers new insights into his long-neglected literary reach and versatility.
