For anyone wishing to read some of Longfellow’s work, the AA/PG Library has several options. A reader searching for a simple, brief sampling can find a very manageable solution in the book Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. This small work has only sixty pages and contains sixteen poems, including “Excelsior” and “The Village Blacksmith.” Another book, The Song of Hiawatha, is available for more ambitious readers. The poem is found in its entirety in this slightly more bulky volume, as are many illustrations.
