1855 1st ed Song of Hiawatha Henry Longfellow Poetry Native American FAMOUS



"When thou smilest, my beloved,

Then my troubled heart is brightened”

– H.W. Longfellow, Song of Hiawatha



An incredible first edition of ‘The Song of Hiawatha’ by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. This epic and popular 19th-century poem tells the love story of an Ojibwe warrior and his love for a Dakota woman. Longfellow describes Indian legends that have stood the test of time, particularly in comparison to the religious themes that are employed through verse.



It was Longfellow who helped the American public understand the image of the Native American. According to Pearce,

“It was Longfellow who fully realized for mid-19th-century Americans the possibility of the image of the noble savage. [Prior to ‘Hiawatha’] there was a general feeling that the Indian belonged nowhere in American life but in dim prehistory” (p. 191)
