The Song of Hiawatha was one of the most loved and quoted narrative poems of the 19th century. It tells the story of a young Ojibway chief growing up, facing his father, the West Wind, in a revenge battle from which they emerge reconciliated, and wooing and marrying Minehaha. The lively narrative, coloured by vivid descriptions of nature and underpinned by the famous Hiawatha metre, makes it a powerful experience to hear, even in the 21st century.
