Hyperion : a romance by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow( Book )
8 editions published in 1853 in English and held by 110 libraries worldwide
Longfellow's "prose romance," Hyperion, is a timeless journey of self-discovery as awe-inspiring and sublime as the Alpine peaks its hero climbs. Hyperion awed its publishers and critics. It has gone on to become a distinctly American classic of the English language At the time of its publication, it had an immense popularity, due mainly to its sentimental romanticism. Hyperion has historical importance for two reasons (1) because it marks that period in Longfellow's career when, though he had left nature, he had not yet found art, and (2) because it opened the sluices through which the flood of German sentimental poetry flowed into the United States. - Publisher
