Hyperion: A Romance, Volume 1
Classic Textbooks, 1839 - 213 pages
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. As well it might; it has gone on to become a distinctly American classic of the English language, a milestone of our literature and our culture. (Jacketless library hardcover.)
