About Book

Book Description
A classic of American literature from one of the nation's first masters, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. ". . . We walk through the streets of the village with a friend who is giving, as we go along, a sketch of the touching drama . . . Kavanagh is, as far as it goes, an exact daguerreotype of New England life." -- The North American Review, No. CXLIV, July, 1849 (jacketless library hardcover)

He pressed his hot brow against the window-pane to allay its fever; and across the tremulous wavelets of the river the tranquil moon sent towards him a silvery shaft of light, like an angelic salutation. And the consoling thought came to him, that not only this river, but all rivers and lakes, and the great sea itself, were flashing with this heavenly light.
