In the short 3 year period Longfellow spent in Europe he was able to master seven languages.
Indeed a feat that is a true testament to his God given talents. Shortly after returning he began to
teach at Bowdoin. During his time at Bowdoin he wrote critical essays and published 6 foreign
language books. As a result, these works of his earned him the Smith Professorship of Modern
Languages at Harvard College which he accepted in 1834. After that he left for Europe again in
1835 to sharpen his language skills. Early on in the trip his young wife Mary died of miscarriage
complications. This left the young rising writer in a deep depression. He decided to push on and
continued to travel throughout Europe. The second Europe trip turned out to be the most important
trip of his life and advanced Longfellow's interest in German Romanticism. Additionally, the

Poetry Analysis Of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Poetry Analysis of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow produced many works of poetry in his lifetime, many which dealt
with American folklore and colonial New England. This is how Longfellow's extended knowledge
of the history of his homeland, and his history allows him to write his informative, and influential
poems such as "Paul Revere's Ride", which some critics considered very basic in its wordage and
had a loose voice. As a writer for just under half his life, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow chose to
write about American folklore, as well as Native American folklore and folklore of the countries he
travelled to, that was influential to his readers and American citizens alike. He was born in Portland,
Maine on February 27, 1807, the second son of seven siblings, he was attending school at three with
his older brother, and by age six he knew Latin, and could read, spell, and multiply. He started
college at age 14 and graduated at age 19, ranking fourth in a class of 38 students. Soon after he
became a professor at Bowdoin only to leave 8 years later, to teach at Harvard, which he would
leave after 18 years of teaching to write full time. One of the great pieces that he composed roughly
20 years prior to his death was the collection of stories he named Tales of a Wayside Inn, which
contained a poem called "Paul Revere's Ride", which was one of the first tales of Paul Revere's ride.
Logically, it can be inferred with the information previously stated that Longfellow was a large
influence in ideas of American Folklore and as a teacher of unknown American history through his
works. This means that through his simplistic and accurate poems he added, changed, and/or
influenced the views of American history of those who read his poem, in his time and the present.
His influence on the American people's view of historical events, and his teachings of said American
history can be seen in many of his works such as Paul Revere's Ride. It is in this poem, though that
Longfellow's view on historical teachings through the use of poetry which also influenced American
ideas on specific topics such as the start of the American Revolution. The battle of Lexington and
Concord, otherwise known as "the shots

  • 5. Poetry Analysis Of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Poetry Analysis of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Henry Wadsworth Longfellow produced many works of poetry in his lifetime, many which dealt with American folklore and colonial New England. This is how Longfellow's extended knowledge of the history of his homeland, and his history allows him to write his informative, and influential poems such as "Paul Revere's Ride", which some critics considered very basic in its wordage and had a loose voice. As a writer for just under half his life, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow chose to write about American folklore, as well as Native American folklore and folklore of the countries he travelled to, that was influential to his readers and American citizens alike. He was born in Portland, Maine on February 27, 1807, the second son of seven siblings, he was attending school at three with his older brother, and by age six he knew Latin, and could read, spell, and multiply. He started college at age 14 and graduated at age 19, ranking fourth in a class of 38 students. Soon after he became a professor at Bowdoin only to leave 8 years later, to teach at Harvard, which he would leave after 18 years of teaching to write full time. One of the great pieces that he composed roughly 20 years prior to his death was the collection of stories he named Tales of a Wayside Inn, which contained a poem called "Paul Revere's Ride", which was one of the first tales of Paul Revere's ride. Logically, it can be inferred with the information previously stated that Longfellow was a large influence in ideas of American Folklore and as a teacher of unknown American history through his works. This means that through his simplistic and accurate poems he added, changed, and/or influenced the views of American history of those who read his poem, in his time and the present. His influence on the American people's view of historical events, and his teachings of said American history can be seen in many of his works such as Paul Revere's Ride.

In his poem he says "And winged with the celestial azure, bearest / The message of some God." meaning that he believes that the flower–de–luce is a flower for God (Longfellow 1). In the lines "...And down the listed sunbeam rides resplendent / With steel–blue mail and shield. / Thou art the Iris, fair among the fairest, / Who, armed with golden rod..." Henry uses metaphors to show that the flower is strong and sturdy but, at the same time, it is soft and fragile (1). Not only does he use figurative language, but he uses a major component that defines poetry during the Romantic Period. Henry uses deep and true feeling while writing Flower–De–Luce. He uses words like beautiful, radiant, joy, and says things like "...fairest among the fair..." showing his deep appreciation for the flower–de–luce (1). Above all he uses nature, which is one the more important things that was used in poetry during the Romantic Period. Henry's entire poem is about a flower. In the lines "O flower–de–luce, bloom on, and let the river / Linger to kiss thy feet! / O flower of song, bloom on, and make forever / The world more fair and sweet." He talks about how beautiful it is and how it brightens his mood and day when he is around it (1). Along with nature, he uses imagery throughout the poem to paint a picture of how beautiful the flower–de–luce is. Henry describes the beauty of the flower–de–luce by saying "Born in the purple, born to joy and pleasance,..." (1).

I decided to write about this particular poem because it interested me how it was straightforward with the message behind it. Humans know that we aren't going to live forever; that eventually our time is up and we no longer will be a part of planet Earth. At first, I struggled with understanding what the poem was about but after reading the poem, it came to me that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow has a strong and important lesson for the readers. The author wants us to realize the true meaning of our life and wants to value our time on Earth. Life is a roller coaster: there's no doubt about that. Just like a roller coaster, life can be bumpy, rocky, and scary, but it can also be fun, thrilling, and exhilarating. Things can go up, and other times things can go down.

The reference to animals and tides at the beginning/end of the poem represent that life will go on for the world even after our death. The tide "efface the footprints in the sands" might mean, "time erases all", because it is everlasting. Another example could be "the day returns". Longfellow is showing how it will never stop: it is a cycle. He shows us by using personification giving human traits to things.

He heard sailors speaking Spanish, French and German in the Portland streets and liked stories set in foreign places"("Poet–Henry Wadsworth Longfellow"). Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was a very popular Romanticist poet during the 18th century. This love of reading and interest in foreign languages lead him into the Romanticism movement. In his lifetime he wrote various different poems that are still studied and enjoyed today. Longfellow's traveling and studies of different languages helped form him into the light Romanticist writer that he is known for today, as demonstrated in "Footsteps of Angels" and "Aftermath". Longfellow achieved many different things in his lifetime. When it was time for him to go to college, his father sent him off to Bowdoin, with hopes that he would become a lawyer. Instead when Longfellow was there he became strongly affiliated with languages. He was so proficient in this area that, "Bowdoin created for him a professorship of modern languages,"(Baym, Franklin, et al 628).

This leads many people to believe that the rebellion was unimportant to the constitutional history of the United States. However, as is often the case, truth is rarely ever that simple. The real story of Shay's Rebellion is complex and long and, most importantly, highly influential in America's constitutional history. Many accounts of Shay's Rebellion credit the insurgents' unhappiness and anger to their debts, but that is not true. In fact, many of the most prominent rebels were in the top twenty percent of wealth in their respective towns. The "debt" explanation was and is used to invalidate the rebels and their cause. Instead, the cause of their malcontent was the newly established government of Massachusetts. The heart of the rebellion was in the western, backcountry of Massachusetts. These towns were predominantly populated by Scots–Irish. These Scots–Irish placed a lot of importance on family. Due to this, members of the towns were extremely close to one another, and when it came time for Massachusetts to draft a constitution, the western town advocated for local egalitarianism (Richards 63).

In 1780 he resigned from the army, and settled in Pelham, Massachusetts, where he held numerous town offices. Soon after, wealth reigned in America at the signing of the peace treaty in 1783, but was quickly transformed into a severe economic depression. He began his rebellion when property holders, including himself, began losing their belongings through confiscations for unpaid debts and taxes and became subject to debtor's imprisonment. Protests then followed, with threats of violence against the courts conducting the enforcements and arraignments. This is when Shays arose as one of the several leaders of what came to be known as Shays Rebellion. After the Rebellion was over, he and approximately a dozen others were sentenced to death by the Supreme Court of Massachusetts. However, towards the end of the rebellion, Shays had escaped to Vermont, soon afterwards he moved to Schoharie county, New York, and then a few years later moved further west to Sparta, New York.

It is considered by many that The Scarlet Letter, "represents the height of Hawthorne's literary genius. At this time, Boston was the center of a very Puritan society. Throughout the novel Hawthorne uses many symbols. For example, one prominent symbol is the scaffold. During this period in time, the scaffold was used for public humiliation.

To not do so, in their doctrine, would be harmful to the group. In this scene Dimmsdale could have given himself up and joined Hester on the scaffold to share in their mutual shame. However, he is thankful that, "She will not speak," and is in awe of the "wondrous strength and generosity of a woman's heart!"(1343) As a minister of the village Dimmsdale is aware of this however, his weakness causes him to deny his sin and internalize it. In this scene Hester is introduced to the burden she is to bear for the remainder of her life of isolation. Chillingsworth in this scene can be seen roaming through and around the edges of the crowd in a sadistic manner as though he is plotting something. The second scene takes place during the middle of the night as Dimmsdale awakes from his sleep and goes to the town to ascend the scaffold in darkness.

  • 23. Nathaniel Hawthorne 's The Minister 's Black Veil In Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Minister's Black Veil" mystery plays a huge role when it comes to plot, and character development. At the end of this story the minister who is wearing the veil rhetorically asks, "What but the mystery which it obscurely typifies has made this piece of crape so awful?" (Hawthorne 1044). Hawthorne has built up this character so carefully and intensely to this point, to quite directly state that this veil on his face represents mystery. The minister also begs the question of, what else does it represent? Asking his congregation, who also persecuted him, to look deep in themselves and figure out the real reason for his apparel. The minister blatantly reveals that his veil typifies mystery in a sense where his congregation cannot keep themselves together, unless they know the absolute truth. Hawthorne uses this veil as a direct representation of mystery and self control, but he also uses it as a symbol of a divine controller, tying in spirituality and religion. Towards the beginning of the story the minister reveals himself looking different, as he wore an obvious black veil over his face. His audience hated the idea of his new look as they muttered amongst themselves, "I don't like it," and "Our parson has gone mad!" (Hawthorne 1038). These two particular quotes obviously reveal the initial distaste for the veil, but it also shows that the congregation could not even control themselves, as they wondered why he wore this disgusting cover.

  • 27. The Nature Of Nature In The Rainy Day By Henry Wadsworth... Since the beginning of time, nature has always been there to support and nourish everything that inhabits it. This goes from the plants to the animals that live their everyday lives depending on nature's support. However nature has been around for so long that we humans have become accustomed to it always being there. This has caused us to take it for granted which is why we never stop to see the deeper meaning and lessons nature has to offer. Nature has many other important values beyond it being just a resource, it is also a teacher of many important life values. Many poets have written about the true beauty of nature and its deeper lessons. One of these poets is the famous Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who became the first American writer to be honored with a bust in the poet's corner of London's Westminster Abbey for his amazing poems that inspired life in America. Much of his work have become classic American hero stories such as "Paul Revere's Ride" but he also touches upon the subject of nature and its values. In his first of three poems entitled "The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls" he shows how nature is powerful and beautiful compared to us weak humans. In his next poem entitled "The Rainy Day", Longfellow discusses how life has its good and bad times, but one should always look back to nature to help them conquer their challenges.

When the sexton tolls the bell Mr. Hooper comes out as usual but wearing a black veil. In my opinion this shows that Mr. Hooper is showing that he committed a sin and he wear the black veil as a way to say everyone wears a mask.

I think the symbolism that Hawthorne tries to show is the corpse is now an angel and is shuddering toward the sin that Mr. Hooper committed when it sees his face, that's why Mr. Hooper stand straight to cover himself with the veil once again.

If any of these factors had been different, how might it have affected the outcome of the war? It seemed as if it would be impossible to defeat Great Britain. George Washington was leading an army that consisted of 20,000 men. Some men were young, poor and did not have land or any skills, Women were also a part of this rebellion by helping those who were hurt from fighting, sick, and simply by cooking and cleaning up after one another. Slaves were also participants in the war. While Great Britain had about 50,000 volunteers plus another 30,000 men that were from Germany. The war seemed to separate the colonists into three separate groups. Ones that were loyal to Britain, which were called "loyalists". Most loyalists had "business ties" with Britain and saw being on Britain's side of the war as being "defenders". While other loyalists despised those that rebelled and assumed their reason to rebel was to obtain more money from the empire. The second group was with George Washington called the "Patriots", who were fighting for the freedom from Britain, and the third group were people that were trying to go about their lives and not get involved in the war.

The poet wants to show that the wife of the speaker symbolizes divine purity. Another thing the two sonnets share is metaphorical language; it used to imply a comparison between two things that are unrelated but share some common ground. Christina Rossetti establishes an idea of metaphorically remaining "alive" through remembrance. The juxtaposition in line 1, "Remember me" and "gone away" implies that the poet suggests that the memory is the last thing a person has that still ties them to life. Henry Longfellow utilizes metaphorical language when he compares a tangible object to emotions. He includes, "There is a mountain.../that.../displays a cross of snow upon its side. / Such is the cross I wear upon my breast" (lines 9–12). The image of a mountain that bears a cross shape filled with snow manifests an image of the angelic figure going towards heaven. Longfellow purposely used a mountain to further implicate religious ideas; the height of the mountain shows that is closer to heaven because it is going upward. The snow symbolizes the wife and that she is on the peak of the mountain, reaching towards heaven. He wears the pain of the loss of his wife on his chest because she is within his soul.

  • 39. The Minister's Black Veil Analysis Society tends to judge the people whom are a bit different. In the story of The Minister Black Veil by Nathaniel Hawthorne, the town preacher decides to wear a black veil.

Even his fiancé leaves him because she becomes scared of the veil. Hooper dies with the veil still on. Hooper believed that wearing the black veil is a form of symbolism to show everyone that sin resides on everyone. According to Hawthorne, Father Hooper was judged by the civilians because father Hooper mentioned before dying "Tremble also at each other!

The first event was in 1786, where a group of protestors made a nonviolent show of force aimed at closing down the civil courts that prosecuted the debt cases, and succeeded in preventing courts from sitting. The state militia withdrew to guard the federal armory at Springfield; but there were concerns that the Regulators would go after the weapons and gunpowder stored there. The government finally intervened, issuing curfews and suspended habeas corpus, the law that states that no one shall be kept in jail before being proved guilty. These actions raised tensions and radicalized the Regulators. Due to the weakness of the Articles of Confederation, the central government was unable to contribute meaningfully to emergent crisis. The inability to end this dispute peacefully led the blood being shed in 1787, where Massachusetts governor James Bowdoin personally raised a private state army made up of three thousand militiamen. A miscommunication on the Regulators side caused a group to march toward the armory a day early. Shays' fourteen hundred men approached the armory unsupported by their allies.

Instead of scribbling lofty lyrics and inscrutable stanzas, Longfellow's poetry is simple, flows with a definite rhyme scheme, and allows anybody to encompass themselves with Longfellow's visions. Some poems dealing with nature and his visions are "Daylight and Moonlight," "Hymn to the Night," "Daybreak" and "The Rainy Day." Each one describes a different time of day, whether it personifies the wind in "Daybreak" or gives a life lesson about gloomy days in "The Rainy Day." Unlike his contemporaries, Emerson, Poe, and Whitman, his poetry isn't far–fetched or musty, trying to collapse the mind with theory and philosophy. Even in his longer works, like "Hiawatha," "The Skeleton in Armor" and "Paul Revere's Ride," Longfellow takes his pen and tells fervent stories that echo inside the reader. "He wished to write not only for 'the few who think' but also for 'the many who feel,' assuming a certain community of nature, interest, and cultural inheritance between himself and his readers" (Wagenknecht 22). Much like Thomas Paine in "The Crisis Papers," Longfellow knew his readers, and although they weren't educated in the fundamentals of poetry, they were educated enough to read. This powered his poetry and therefore nature and emotion gorged his writing and propelled it forward, even if some critics and historians view him as an underdog.

He had many scenarios where people are either uncomfortable or concern towards him. Not only because simply him as a person but because of what he constantly keeps with him, his black veil. With his ongoing life and his black veil, many people believed he has a sin but others oppose and claims he doesn't. Mr. Hooper obviously has a sin because of what his black veil symbolized and his behavior and mentality. Mr. Hooper, the minister with the black veil, has a sin. Mr. Hooper wore the black veil to symbolized secret sin; this veil represented how everyone has something in their heart that no one knows about. For example, "people have speculations that Mr. Hooper committed adultery with the young girl that died at the beginning of the story". Simultaneously, he wears the veil to hide his face from the world and what he did. Others will bring up the fact that Mr. Hooper doesn't want to be defined by the black veil but by himself as an individual.

  • 59. Analysis Of The Arrow And The Song "The Arrow and the Song" is a relatively short, yet complex poem that takes some deep thinking to pull apart. The narrator shoots an arrow into the air, yet cannot follow it, for it soared across the sky, far into the unknown. The narrator also lets a song be heard to the world, also unable to follow this, because of course, you cannot see words with your eyes. After much time, he or she finds both unbroken, the arrow in an oak tree, and the song within a heart of a friend. However, the meaning of the poem runs much deeper than a simplistic story of someone shooting an arrow and letting loose a song, unable to find them until years later. The poem, upon being looked into, is actually a lesson that warns the reader to be wary of what they say, for we are unable to know of where the things we say will end up, or their effect. The theme is heavily pushed by repetition, along with a cleverly thought out use of words and symbolism, both fall into place nicely with the metaphors used. Once you dig into the poem on a search for the true meaning, it becomes rather obvious and clear. As previously stated, the theme of "The Arrow and the Song" is a short tale cautioning us to be careful of what we say and do, for all of our actions and words leave impacts on the world, impacts that we would have never expected, these effects can last forever, and it is up to us to decide how we want our mark to be left on the world.

To be more exact, it is a college education that is or should be available to all and is only necessary for securing a successful job. But before we even begin to think about a job or whether we want to pursue our God–given right to higher education we must first start our journey at the bottom of the educational system.

  • 63. Curiosity In Nathaniel Hawthorne In The Minister's Black Veil Curiosity can be an incredible thing as Hawthorne's own exploration of knowledge led him to discover his lineage's dark actions against others. This leads him to explore the darker parts of people's minds and their original sins. From a very young age, Hawthorne's intelligence was acknowledged and nurtured. So much so that his family hoped he would go to college. He demonstrated an aptitude for journalism from the age of 16. He entered Bowdoin College in 1821 where he proved himself to be a competent, but not always diligent, scholar. He expressed a lack of interest in the professions of law and medicine as his time in college came to an end. He proposed the idea of becoming a writer to his mother. He returned home, only to keep himself in isolation for 11 years. During this time, Hawthorne wrote "Fanshawe", a novel based off his time at Bowdoin. Time passed and he had begun researching New England history, only to find that one of his Puritan ancestors had "ordered the whipping of a Quaker woman, and another had served as a judge during the Salem witch trials." It is believed that this guilt of his family history led Hawthorne into analyzing evil of man and the original sins in his works, which was the basis for "The Minister's Black Veil".
