Excerpt from Outre-Mer: A Pilgrimage Beyond the Sea

Journals and Correspondence, as also to the poet's family for other valuable aid.

In examining the poems as they were printed at different times, the editor noted occasional varia tions in form, indicating the scrutiny which Mr. Longfellow gave to his work after it was in print, and the perfection of form at which he aimed. The bulk of these various readings is not great, for the poet was a severe critic of his manuscript, as well as instinctively true in his sense of form; where the variations occur, however, they have been given in foot-notes, though it has not been deemed expedient to follow a poem through successive edi tions, but only to record the difference between the first and the final forms.

About the Author :

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was born in 1807 in Portland, Maine, and he became a professor of modern languages at Harvard. His most famous narrative poems include The Song of Hiawatha, Paul Reveres Ride, "The Village Blacksmith," "The Wreck of the Hesperus." From his friend Nathaniel Hawthorne, Longfellow got a brief outline of a story from which he composed one of his most favorite poems, 'Evangeline'. The original story had Evangeline wandering about New England in search of her bridegroom. One of the first poets to take the landscape and stories of North America as his subjects, Longfellow became immensely popular all over the world, and he was the first American commemorated in the Poets Corner of Westminster Abbey. He was given honorary degrees at the great universities of Oxford and Cambridge, invited to Windsor by Queen Victoria, and called by request upon the Prince of Wales. He was also chosen a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and of the Spanish Academy. He died on March 24, 1882.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Outre-Mer: A Pilgrimage Beyond the Sea The present edition of Mr. Longfellow s writings includes all the prose and poetry which the author admitted into the latest edition of his works, together with those pieces which have appeared since his death, with the sanction of his representatives. The text is the last revised by the author, and is printed with scrupulous care. The order of the writings is chronological in its main lines. It would not be practicable to print the several poems and prose pieces in exact accordance with the order of their composition, nor even with that of their original publication. Mr. Longfellow himself adopted a final arrangement which collected under appropriate heads poems wide apart in the time of their origin, but he preserved, in the main, the classification of the separate volumes issued by him from time to time. His general arrangement has been followed in the present edition, except that it has been thought advisable to group in one section all the translations. In order, however, to furnish the reader and the student with all necessary bibliographical apparatus, great care has been taken to trace the history of the several writings, and to throw light upon the development of Mr. Longfellow s genius.
