What does it mean that H.W. Longfellow reached the "household name" status?
No one had to ask, "Henry Who?"
Oh okay. Thank you. Also do you know why Longfellows poems were considered comforting?
Have you read them? If you have read them ... especially if you have read them aloud or listened to someone else read them aloud, you'd already know. (Poetry is not meant to be read silently!)
Pay attention to sounds, to who's speaking, to what he/she is saying, and whom or what is being addressed.
ok thank you
