CHAPTER XIV
AMERICAN LITERATURE

don't you speak for yourself, John?" His Tales of a Wayside Inn shows how sensitive he was to the colour and romance of medieval life. Longfellow's keynote is sympathy. When sorrow came to him his pity went out to all who suffered. In the midst of his own grief he wrote :

There is no fireside, howsoe'er defended,
But has one vacant chair.

In his Hiawatha, an epic tracing the career of a Red Indian chieftain, he introduced a Finnish metre ; in Evangeline he succeeded in using the classic hexameter in English ; but his title to enduring fame rests rather upon his gift of speaking directly to the heart, in language at once simple and eloquent.
James Russell Lowell,1819-1891. Lowell's early life was spent amid pleasant surroundings, and while his Vision of Sir Launfal shows how well he learned the out-of-door world, his essays prove how familiar he became with the world of books.
He was born at Cambridge, near Boston, and was sent to Harvard. He read every volume he could get hold of not required by the curriculum, and was so care less as to whether his work were done or not that at one time he was ` rusticated ' for six weeks ; also, to his father's annoyance, he was chosen class poet.
