Synopsis

As a lover of great rhyme poetry, and in particular, a fan of Henry Wadsworth Longfellows poetry - I was glad to finally find that a Complete Works volume was available. If (like me) you are a lover of Longfellows 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..its 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 Longfellows thoughtful and imaginative work with rhyme, rhythm, and imagery.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is known as one of Americas best known and best loved poets of all time. The Complete Poetical Works, covers I believe, everything ever writteb by this exquisite poet.

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 works.

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 rhymes.

I can honestly, without reserve, recommend this book to all who love Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, American Poetry and Poets.
