Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Born: Portland, United States of America

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was the most popular and influential American poet of the 19th century. Longfellow had the widest range and greatest technical skill of all the poets of "the flowering of New England." Born in Portland, Maine on Feb. 27, 1807, he would grow up to influence the poetic taste of generations of readers throughout the English-speaking world. He was successful in both lyric and narrative poetry, and during his later years became a master of the sonnet. Ballads like "The Wreck of the Hesperus" and "Paul Revere's Ride" were familiar to every schoolchild, and Evangeline became the first enduringly successful long poem written in the United States. He died on March 24, 1882 at the age of 75.
