This is one of the best poems I have ever had the pleasure to read. It
taught me a lot of useful information. As well, it showed me that you
should never give up in life because you never know what you will find.
You will find things such as love, friendships, and even families. I play
the piano and I wrote a song based on this poem. This poem reminds me of
so much of my history.

This poem is about my grand mother's grandmother....I'm Acadian and this
poem to me is amazing. The Acadians went throught alot of hardships and
even slavery in the united states, and the fact that Longfellow wrote this
show that some people understood what was happening to the Acadians. I live
in an Acadian village in Nova Scotia my ancestors came back, and reading
this tale of Evangeline helps us understand what our ancestors must have
been feeling. It's just touching that a great american showed pity for my
ancestors, took the time to learn about us, and maybe voiced that what
happened was wrong.

Because of the current events I looked for any information about Louisiana,
I became drawn into the history of the Acadians. Thus I came across this
epic, and because I love the Song of Hiawatha, I read it, and cried, and
cried. I know so much more now.

Watching the current day refugees in Louisiana reminded me of the story of
the exodus from Acadia and their travels to that land. I first read this
poem many years ago in a wonderful literature class in the 9th grade.
Again it made me cry. Too bad that today's students are not exposed to
those marvelous stories and descriptive language.

As a direct descendant of these brave people, I dearly love this piece of
literature. It truly tells of their trials and sorrows and the gross
attrocities directed at them. Not unlike the genociedes of this time.
