This vintage book is Thomas Wentworth Higginson's 1902 biography, "Henry Wadsworth Longfellow". Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) was a seminal American poet and member of the Fireside Poets. Written with the skill of a novelist and the meticulous detail of a scholar, this fantastic biography will appeal to those with an interest in the life and work of this great poet, and is well deserving of a place on any bookshelf. Contents include: "Longfellow as a Classic", "Birth, Childhood, and Youth", "First Flights in Authorship", "Literature as a Pursuit", "First Visit to Europe", "Marriage and Life and Brunswick", "The Corner Stone Laid", "Appointment at Harvard and Second Visit to Europe", "Illness and Death of Mrs. Longfellow", "Craige House", "Hyperion and the Reaction from It", etc. Many classic books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive.
