Longfellow wrote this hour long, loosely organized poem, based on family lore. It relates a love triangle at Plymouth Rock with both men loving the fair Priscilla. The reading was just fine, but felt like reading from a hard copy would be more enjoyable.

This is a story told me long ago by my mother who explained the line that delighted her: `Why don`t you speak for yourself, John?". A wonderful listen -- and now I know even better why she loved the tale. Portrait of the proud military hero, Miles Standish, is very well crafted, as is that of his counterpart and young friend - the writer, John Alden. John is sent on a mission to bear a marriage proposal on behalf of Miles Standish -- to the lovely Priscilla, already secret queen of John's own heart. How does one carry out an order like that one? I loved the tale, and its beautiful writing, though it is hard to excuse some of the phrases in which the native Americans were described . A small flaw in a great story, I thought.
