Hiawatha and the Pearl Feather

In this poem, Hiawatha is sent to “pass the black-pitch water,” “slay this
merciless magician,” (which is the Pearl-Feather) “save the people from the
fever,” and “avenge my father’s murder!” Hiawatha is like the hero of the
poem. The poem is describing an adventure to save the people from disease,
sickness, and the Pearl Feather. However, in this poem, it does mention
war. I think that Hiawatha is going to fight against the other side.
Possibly, Pearl-Feather is the leader on the other side that is trying to
send the fever and sickness to them. This kind of reminds me of history,
when the European men came to America and spread a disease that killed all
the Indians.
I think that the tone of this poem is bold in the beginning. However, the
mood changes when Hiawatha returns to the people; it is heroic and
triumphant towards the end.

I was astounded when I read this poem. When I was looking thought the
titles I saw this one and thought this one is going to be about the beach
but instead as I read this poem it is talking more about a war. But, it
does have a beach in this poem. At first I was really confused, The first
few lines I was lost then I read “Followed fast those bloody footprints,”
which really woke me up then it talked about war, then I knew this poem was
not about the beach. From all the adjectives I can really see the imagery.
For example when it says “Guarded by the black pitch-water.” I can really
see how everything is turning out when I read more and more into this poem.
