Passwords: J.D. McClatchy on Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Oct 19, 2000 | 7:00 pm

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Poetry Talks, Poetry NYC

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) was revered during his lifetime as America’s beloved national bard, and for generations afterwards he was a staple of the hearthside and the schoolroom. But for decades now his fame has receded. Poet, editor and critic J.D. McClatchy reads and discusses Longfellow’s work, muses on the tides of taste, and presents a fresh view of this long-neglected and underestimated poet.
