I look forward to reading through these poems, but I would have chosen a different compilation had I known exactly what the book contains, and more importantly, what it omits.

A friend and I toured Longfellow's home in Cambridge this past July and were absolutely delighted by the experience. The work they do to preserve his house and property is truly remarkable and I would strongly recommend it to anyone. Sadly, this is also where I picked up a copy of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: Selected Poems. They carried many attractive collections of Longfellow by reputable presses, but, foolishly, I was swayed by this handsomely bound volume which promised a broad collection of lyrics plus three lengthy narratives printed in their entirety.

Unfortunately, the volume is so badly edited, I have already urged the Longfellow house not to carry it! Indeed, there are several hundred errors and probably more imperfect pages than good ones.

Most routinely, there are uncountable typesetting or typographical glitches. Strophes within the same poem, for instance, are not consistently formatted or divided with an empty line - making for an awkward reading (see, for example, the confusing elision of Crashaw's motto with Longfellow's poem, A Psalm of Life, p. 53). In addition, spaces between words are often dropped or else extra spaces appear - I especially like those before punctuation which leave a comma or semicolon floating in the margin.

Of course, these are amusing, though minor, embarrassments. However, all too many errors are of grave consequence. The last six lines are missing [!] from The Courtship of Miles Standish (p. 110). As printed, the poem ends with a comma!! Also, six strophes are missing from the opening poem, The Builders. Some mistakes are utterly bizarre (strophes 10-12 of The Wreck of the Hesperus read "Oh fatherl...O fathert...O fartherl!," p. 66), and it is unimaginable that the editors would have missed them had they actually done an editor's work! Worst of all is the highly corrupt, Hiawatha. Dozens, about 60 by my count, of individual words are dropped at random throughout the text (ten instances alone between the bottom-half of 170 through p.172, for example).

As a scholar of music and poetry, my concern may be more intense than some - I have obsessively re-edited the entire volume for myself (making it quite serviceable for my purposes, however ugly!). Nevertheless, excepting someone who wants only a pretty souvenir for the mantle (perhaps, the intended customer of Castle Books - and their parent company, Book Sales, inc.), no one could remain unflustered while reading through this book. This relects badly on both the publishers and the editors, Johanna Brownell and Lisa Lipkin (why did it take two of them!?). Considering that Longfellow's poetry is well within the public domain, it is sad that someone wishing to own a collection of favorites should be duped into purchasing an attractive, yet often unreadable, volume. It certainly should not be sold on the premises of a first-rate, national institution that honors the very poet the publishing house treats so carelessly.

Longfellow is not placed among the great poetic masters. But his great reputation in his lifetime does make a certain sense. For he wrote much poetry of strength and value. He is an American classic and if his too many long lines in 'Evangeline' and 'Hiawatha' put many to sleep they too at times inspired.
