Life of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Volume One), Volume 1

Front Cover
The Minerva Group, Inc., 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 480 pages
The Life of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow by his brother contains abundant material for a full survey of the poets life and career.This is the life of a man of letters. Mr. Longfellow was not that exclusively, but he was that supremely. He touched life at many points; and certainly he was no bookworm or dry-as-dust scholar shut up in a library. He kept the doors of his study always open, both literally and figuratively. But literature, as it was his earliest ambition, was always his most real interest; it was his constant point of view; it was his chosen refuge.
