Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: Other Resources

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is a major cultural figure and there is a vast amount of information about him, his life, his work, and his family available for study.

The information on this website was largely drawn from the following two books:

A guide to the Wadsworth-Longfellow House featuring essays by Joyce Butler, former curator of the Maine Historical Society (MHS); Richard D'Abate, Executive Director of MHS; and Laura Sprague, restoration curator of the Wadsworth-Longfellow House.

Calhoun, Charles, Longfellow: A Rediscovered Life, Beacon Press, Boston, 2004

The first new biography of Longfellow in almost fifty years.

The bibliography page of this section lists many other resources, including those available for use at the Maine Historical Society Research Library. Finally, check the announcements page for information about publications and events relating to Longfellow.
