Educator, poet, and the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote many exceptional works in his lifetime. In this book, you'll find two of them.

Outr -Mer, also known as A Pilgrimage Beyond the Sea, is a travelogue, and was inspired by Longfellow's time in Europe. With beautiful imagery he describes his time overseas in a nostalgic tone, that makes you yearn for it if you've never been and appreciate it if you have.

Drift-wood, on the hand, is a collection of his prose papers published in prominent magazines of that time. It contains his reviews of European prose and poetry such as Ancient French Romances, The Great Metropolis and Paris in the seventeenth century.

Longfellow was America's most popular and celebrated poet of the 19th century, and these works more than explain why. He was a writer who evoked deep feelings in his reader and you will not read this book without experiencing beautiful catharsis.
