    The Courtship of Miles Standish

  1. Author: Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
    Title: The Courtship of Miles Standish
    Date: 1858
    Genre: poetry
    Note Relating to Cather: Cather comments on The Maid of Plymouth, an opera based on The Courtship of Miles Standish: "there seems to be a peculiar fatality about the story of Miles Standish. He doesn't seem to work up well in prose or verse. Probably Mr. Longfellow killed him thoroughly some years ago, along with English hexameter."
