A Romance Disrupted by Deportation

by FanOfTimeLifeBooks on Jan 17, 2014

In the 1750s the English government forcibly removed several thousand French colonists from Acadia, a region in Nova Scotia, Canada. Evangeline is a narrative poem and fictionalized account of a couple separated during this deportation. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow skillfully tells the story of Evangeline's quest to find her lover Gabriel. Moreover, vivid imagery and expressive language make this poem a real pleasure to read. Highly recommended.
