Very satisfying and one or two (one especially) pieces of useful information for future puzzles.

I'm glad I studied American Literature way back.
Some great facts in this puzzle.
He was one of America's finest and most revered poets.

Well written!

Thanks, everyone, I'm pleased you liked it. It was inspired by a very enjoyable novel with Longfellow as a central character, which revealed what an interesting life he had and led me to reread some of the poems. Other Fireside Poets are also featured in the novel; I recommend The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl to anyone who might enjoy a mystery about grisly serial murders investigated by a pack of poets.

Thanks for the info! Hm, not sure I'd enjoy reading about "grisly serial murders," but the "pack of poets" as investigators sure makes me want to check out the book!

Not much of a poetry reader but always enjoyed the cadance his poems had.

Hiawatha and Paul Revere are prime examples for me.
