Evangeline is a beautiful and poignant narrative poem that tells the story of a young Acadian woman separated from her true love during the expulsion of the Acadian people from Nova Scotia in the mid-18th century. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's lyrical and emotive writing style beautifully captures the spirit of Evangeline's journey as she searches for her lost love Gabriel.

The poem is filled with vivid imagery, striking descriptions of the landscape, and heartfelt emotions that bring the characters and their struggles to life. Longfellow skillfully weaves themes of love, loss, displacement, and resilience throughout the story, making it a moving and timeless tale of the power of love and the enduring strength of the human spirit.

Evangeline is a literary masterpiece that continues to resonate with readers today, reminding us of the importance of love, perseverance, and hope in the face of adversity. Longfellow's timeless poem is a must-read for anyone who appreciates beautiful storytelling and profound themes that touch the heart and soul.

Book Description:
Evangeline is one of Longfellow’s most popular poems and was once a great favorite with the American people. For many years almost every school child studied this poem during the middle school years. Although the decline of the reputation of the once-idolized poet has also brought neglect to this classic, it is still a very touching and expertly written work of art. It is based upon the tragic expulsion of the French settlers from Acadia (located in the Canadian maritime provinces) during the French & Indian War (1754-1763). Many Acadians died as a result of their exile, and many families were separated, including the heroine of this poem and her betrothed. Although she is a fictional character, statues of her and other memorials exist in Nova Scotia and other places now inhabited by descendants of the Acadians, later frequently known as “Cajuns.” (Introduction by Leonard Wilson)
