About This Item

NEW YORK : BARSE & HOPKINS, 1900 LIGHT BROWN, SOFT LEATHER COVER. GOLD STAMPED TITLE FRONT COVER. THIGHT AND CLEAN THROUGHOUT. FRONTISPIECE IS CRAIGIE HOUSE, LONGFELLOWS HOME. INTRODUCTION BY AUSTEN T. KEMPTON. BEAUTIFUL ARTWORK AND WONDERFULLY WRITTEN IN POETRY BY LONGFELLOW. MADE INTO A FILM IN 1923. CIRCA 1900, DATE IS UNLEDGEABLE AND STAMPED INSIDE BACK COVER. The Courtship of Miles Standish is an 1858 narrative poem by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow about the early days of Plymouth Colony, the colonial settlement established in America by the Mayflower Pilgrims. The Courtship of Miles Standish is set in the year 1621 against the backdrop of a fierce Indian war and focuses on a love triangle among three Mayflower passengers: Miles Standish, Priscilla Mullins, and John Alden. Longfellow said that the story was true, but the historical evidence is inconclusive. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (February 27, 1807 – March 24, 1882) was an American poet and educator whose works include "Paul Revere's Ride", The Song of Hiawatha, and Evangeline. He was the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy and was one of the fireside poets from New England. Longfellow was born in Portland, Maine, which was then still part of Massachusetts. ANTIQUE BOOKS DEN, WHERE INTERESTING BOOKS LIVE.
