display_description As a member of the Fireside Poets, a group of five American poets whose work elevated American poetry to a status equal to if not surpassing that of the English poets, Longfellow produced a number of memorable poems including "Paul Revere's Ride," "The Song of Hiawatha," and "Evangeline." In "Evangeline," arguably his most famous work, we have the story of an Acadian girl who searches for her lost love Gabriel during the time of the Great Upheaval. Longfellow's poetry is notable for its lyricism and dealt extensively with stories of mythology and legend. As arguably the most famous American poet of his time his writings afforded him great success and established a legacy that endures to this day. This representative collection of poems includes some of his most memorable and popular verse.
