It is amazing that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow could put so much into a 52 page poem There is the love story, of course, and the themes of devotion and persistence, but there is also faith, forgiveness, the cruelties of war, injustice, extreme loss, strength of character, and reclamation The descriptive quality of his poetry is mesmerizing I felt I could see the Acadian village, the Louisiana bayou and the western mountains Does this not describe the spread of an epidemic perfectly And, as th It is amazing that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow could put so much into a 52 page poem There is the love story, of course, and the themes of devotion and persistence, but there is also faith, forgiveness, the cruelties of war, injustice, extreme loss, strength of character, and reclamation The descriptive quality of his poetry is mesmerizing I felt I could see the Acadian village, the Louisiana bayou and the western mountains Does this not describe the spread of an epidemic perfectly And, as the tides of the sea arise in the month of September,Flooding some silver stream, till it spreads to a lake in the meadow,So death flooded life, and, o erflowing its natural margin,Spread to a brackish lake, the silver stream of existence.You can both feel the spreading of the disease and in an eerie way, see it.I read this once, long ago, when I was a girl Then it was just the love story that I came away with It was like reading Romeo and Juliet as a teenager This time, I left the poem with so much English has never sounded this good using dactyls and spondees.

remember I m sure that s because I was so young when I did and besides being a satisfying story of undying, tragic love it s full of wonderful descriptions of several vastly different areas of North America, including my home state of Louisiana before it was Louisiana I was amazed by how touching this historical epic poem was As I began to read it, I was fascinated with even the simplest ideas in the book Longfellow has a nice way of describing every little thing so eloquently and in such precise details Now through rushing chutes, among green islands, where plumelike cotton trees nodded their shadowy crests, they swept with the current, Then emerged into road lagoons Nodded their shadowy crests is definitely my favorite line from this verse It h I was amazed by how touching this historical epic poem was As I began to read it, I was fascinated with even the simplest ideas in the book Longfellow has a nice way of describing every little thing so eloquently and in such precise details Now through rushing chutes, among green islands, where plumelike cotton trees nodded their shadowy crests, they swept with the current, Then emerged into road lagoons Nodded their shadowy crests is definitely my favorite line from this verse It has such imagery And I can t forget to mention how heartbreaking yet beautiful the loyalty and love of Evangeline and Gabriel was Though their homes burned, and their love separated, it did not cease to exist despite these hardships For though love was resting, for it was parted, love was not dead Beautiful story I would recommend to anyone who is interested in the History of Acadie, elaborate writing language, and poetry that convinces truth and image Fairest of all the maids was Evangeline, Benedict s daughter Noblest of all the youths was Gabriel, son of the blacksmith I remember when my 6th grade teacher introduced this book to our class as a small assignment to understand a part of Canada s history It was kind of an introduction to our big Canada Projects due at the end of the year In class, we read a base outline, including only major details I was almost satisfied with that until I saw the ending It wasn t there The part that

details I was almost satisfied with that until I saw the ending It wasn t there The part that wasn t there was the part my teacher wanted us to look up No, it did not include extra credit and what not but I was greatly interested in the book because of its romantic essence Pretty soon, I got a copy of this epic poem and I m almost through reading it a second time This love story makes my heart leap with the poetic language and fluid motions of the words Even though I was only eleven years old when I read it for the first time, the fascination hasn t worn off yet I always find something new every time I re read this To anyone who has never read an epic poem, this is a good starter It is direct, but the mind is still excercised This is the Acadian Expulsion given the Titanic treatment terrible thing love story After many pages painting Acadia as the most perfect, pure, and beautiful place, the English arrive It s a pretty jarring and entertaining tone shift Shit gets real pretty quick The

This is the Acadian Expulsion given the Titanic treatment terrible thing love story After many pages painting Acadia as the most perfect, pure, and beautiful place, the English arrive It s a pretty jarring and entertaining tone shift Shit gets real pretty quick The language is a bit flowery which softens the action but it is truly a violent scene Their village is completely destroyed, families are torn apart, people die THE FIRST TWENTY PAGES Everything in Acadia perfect On most evenings, Evangeline, the fairest of maidens, could be found weaving in the home of her father, a proud farmer, who hummed songs he learned in the Burgundian countryside There was a knock at the door and in came the blacksmith and his son Gabriel, the noblest of young men Come in, my friends, said her father, and join us by the fire for our home is a lonely place without you Come and sit and we will speak of the old country What say you friend What news have you today And the blacksmith replied, Have you seen those god damned English warships out in the bay When the fuck did they get here Holy shit, we re screwed They got, like, fifty cannons on each one of those things What the fuck are we going to do about that Evangeline caught Gabriel s eye and blushed While it does get fairly active during the expulsion, Evangeline spends the rest of her life aimlessly wandering around being sad over being separated from her boyfriend, Gabriel Call me a stick in the mud but there wasn t much character development to make me sympathetic We know almost nothing about their relationship or about them as people The best description we get is that Evangeline is the fairest of maidens and Gabriel is the noblest of boys We re supposed to look up to Evangeline for being so dedicated, so unrepenting in her love, but these days her gay best friend would tell her to quit her damn crying because there s a lot of available Yankee dick for the world s fairest maiden.Oh Also, there s a moment when she s sailing down the river in Mississippi River or somewhere and she meets some of her separated kin One of them tells her, The American south is the fucking best The land is fertile and it doesn t snow all the damn time This year, I didn t lose my entire family to famine and or scurvy and or bear attacks I m so glad we were deported Kind of ruins the whole book, doesn t it They were pretty happy with the outcome, after all.Anyway, I was happy to read it and it s a historical text I would highly recommend if you re interested in the topic but yeah, it s pretty weird THE ENTIRE REST OF THE BOOK She walked around and looked at some trees and sometimes thought of Gabriel even though she knew nothing about him because their fathers never allowed them to spend time alone and because women wasn t allowed to express their own thoughts so Gabriel could not reply to them with his thoughts.She walked around for forty years until there was a plague and she took a job as a nurse and one day there was Gabriel on a cot in the hospital She cried and he cried and you think she s going to be rewarded for her patience and then he full on dies right there But you got those last ten seconds in, right Evangeline Totally acceptable ratio of wandering to boyfriend time I am ashamed to say, for being an Acadian, I never read this before today I knew the story but reading it was far much better Will be definitely adding this to our school curriculum I grew up in Louisiana and have a sister named Evangeline, yet I never got around to reading this until today Overall meh But certainly not bad and I can see why people like it It could make a great opera.I didn t get a strong sense of rhythm from it, so I can t tell whether he got the right number of syllables in tricky words like Natchitoches and Atchafalaya.
