Greetings from Longfellow, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/greetings-from-longfellow-by-henry-wadsworth-longfellow/
This is a wonderful selection of six of the greatest works from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, unquestionably one of the world's most celebrated poets. Despite its small size, the book covers a wide spectrum of the poet's thoughts and ideas, from those on patriotism, to the inherent uncertainty of the human condition, to hope for the future - and all with a strong faith in the ability of humanity to see life through successfully. These themes, coupled with an overall tenor of joy and optimism in the face of challenges inherent in the struggle for mankind's survival, make this work a most enjoyable addition to the library of a poet of Longfellow's distinction. (Summary by Bruce Kachuk)

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!
