Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was a poet for people as well as a popular man who always seemed to please his readers. He wrote poems on wide varieties of subjects coming with an enthusiastic optimism, in which won him a huge, devoted audience. His most popular works include Evangeline, The Courtship of Miles Standish, and Paul Revere's Ride, which brought alive stories from the past. He was also a professor in European languages and literature at both Bowdoin and Harvard Colleges. Longfellow was known as an extraordinary public success, in addition to his good looks and sense of humor.
