About-

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s Evangeline was a bestseller in nineteenth-century America, inspiring generations of readers with a heroine who overcomes colonial violence and exile in her romantic and spiritual quest across America. Long ignored by modernist scholars, Evangeline is finally getting the critical attention it deserves. Drawing on original research in Longfellow’s scholarly manuscripts, Bartel explores the theological sources and spiritual world of Evangeline, arguing that Longfellow was inspired by the church fathers to craft Evangeline into a heroine who uniquely exemplifies, in her epic quest, the ancient Christian doctrines of deification and divine light. Bartel’s Glimpses of Her Father’s Glory returns Evangeline to its rightful place as a major poem of American literature, one that takes as its theme nothing less than the ultimate purpose of human existence.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Evangeline is one of the neglected masterpieces of American literature. It not only presents a compelling story told in language of astonishing beauty—the meter of Homer and Virgil truly brought to life in English for the first time—Evangeline is also a tale of deep moral, political, and theological depth. In our age of political refugees and religious persecution, these issues remain terrifyingly relevant. How good to see Timothy Bartel dig into the theological sources and implications of Longfellow's North American epic.”

—Dana Gioia, author of Pity the Beautiful



“Focusing on Longfellow’s interest in patristics, Timothy Bartel's new work also contributes to the recent rediscovery of Longfellow as a wonderfully learned, deeply reflective, and inevitably cosmopolitan poet.”

—Christoph Irmscher, author of Longfellow Redux
