Review: The Song of Hiawatha

User Review  - Keith - Goodreads

Ah, Hiawatha. A name known by all, a poem known by few. It is a poem justly derided, but probably beaten up a bit too much. It is true that this bestselling work (it sold more copies in 1855 than any ... Read full review

This is one of many pieces of literature I've always meant to read. Once I got used to the odd rhythm of this poem, I found it fairly entertaining. I imagined myself back in the 1830's, getting my ... Read full review
