Included are the memorable "The Skeleton in Armor," "The Arsenal at Springfield," "Mezzo Cammin," and "Aftermath." Here, too, is Divina Commedia, the six sonnets on Dante that are among the poet's finest works. All have been reprinted from an authoritative edition of Longfellow's poems.
Sat the little Hiawatha;
Heard the whispering of the pine-trees,
Sounds of music, words of wonder . . ."
The infectious rhythm of The Song of Hiawatha has captured the ears of millions. Once drawn in, they've stayed to hear about the young brave with the magic moccasins, who talks with animals and uses his supernatural gifts to bring peace and enlightenment to his people.

HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW BY THOMAS WENTWORTH HIGGINSON
Artist-illustrator Herbert Meyer's illustrations give new life to Longfellow's epic poem. Besides being warmly evocative, they are historically authentic, for the artist did extensive research on the American Indians. Meyer's artistic vision does full justice to Longfellow's immortal epic, which is not only an American favorite, but is known and admired throughout the world for its hauntingly beautiful poetry.
The Song of Hiawatha's particular blend of myth and history, native tradition and foreign influence has survived the years, and its artistic authenticity is undisputed. The same, we hope, can be said for the illustrations of Herbert Meyer, brought to light in this new, digital edition.
“When thou are not pleased, beloved, / Then my heart is sad and darkened, / As the shining river darkens / When the clouds drop shadows on it!” - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Song of Hiawatha
The Song of Hiawatha is an epic poem inspired after the Ojibwe - a Native American tribe - myths and legends. Read about the making of the world we live in and about the adventures of Hiawatha - the hero who invented written language and discovered corn - as seen by one Amerindian tribe.
