Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: His Circle and World

This panel for the NeMLA 2015 Annual Convention, to be held in Toronto, Canada, from April 30 to May 3, 2015, seeks papers that continue the renaissance in the study of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882). The panel will focus on Longfellow's engagement with a circle of friends, correspondents, fellow artists, and admirers who made up an integral portion of the intellectual life of the United States in the nineteenth century. Papers should consider Longfellow's relationships, whether personal, artistic, or intellectual, with important nineteenth-century figures and perhaps lesser-known persons. The panel will imagine Longfellow's world and milieu.
