Personal Fact of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was an American poet and educator. He was famous for writing lyric poems, which were popular for their musicality and stories of mythology and legend. His poetry reflects great versatility, generally utilizing anapestic and trochaic forms, blank verse, heroic couplets, ballads and sonnets. Despite being criticized for imitating European styles, Longfellow became the most popular American poet of his era.

He had written some important translations, including the immensely popular translation of Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy. To honor his role with translations, Harvard established the Longfellow Institute in 1994, dedicated to literature written in the United States in languages other than English. Longfellow’s other important poetry collection includes Voices of the Night (1839) and Ballads and Other Poems (1841).
