Description - Longfellow by Charles Calhoun

A study of one of America's greatest poets. The Longfellow of Calhoun's biography emerges as one of America's first powerful culture makers: a poet and teacher who helped define Victorian culture; a major conduit for European culture into America; a catalyst for the Colonial Revival movement in architecture and interior design; and a critic of both puritanism and the American obsession with material success. The volume includes portraits by many of Longfellow's friends and contemporaries, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Charles Dickens, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Oscar Wilde.
