Praise

“A sprightly, long-needed biography of 19th-century America’s most famous, myth-making poet . . . An enormously sympathetic portrait of a universally admired gentleman [that] could well encourage a new generation to read Longfellow.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Masterful . . . warm and vivid . . . and solid in placing [Longfellow] in the context of [his] times.”–Michael Kenney, Boston Sunday Globe

“Calhoun’s biography is commendable. . . His defense of Longfellow’s poetry is all the more forceful for never being overstated.”–Frank Wilson, Philadelphia Inquirer

“[A] sympathetic and welcome biography. . . Calhoun has written a fine book.”–Patrick J. Walsh, Christian Science Monitor

“[A] readable, informative biography. . . Longfellow became for his day an international icon of literature and civility.”–Tony Lewis, Providence Sunday Journal
