Hyperion: A Romance (1839) is a novel by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Although he is known predominately as one of the leading American poets of the nineteenth century, Longfellow began his career writing moderately successful travelogues, stories, and novels. Inspired by his travels throughout Europe, as well as by the death of his first wife, Longfellow published Hyperion: A Romance to lukewarm critical response. Although less significant than his lyric and epic poetry, Hyperion captures an artist coming into his own within a Romantic tradition flooded with major and minor figures across the globe.

Modeled partly on Goethe’s Wilhelm Meister’s Lehrjahre (1796), Hyperion: A Romance is the story of Paul Flemming, a young academic who travels to Germany following the loss of a close friend. Taking in the sights, sounds, folk tales, and music of the countryside, towns, and villages he visits, Flemming muses on the position of humanity in the world and the meaning of art in relation to nature. Filled with such lofty thoughts, he is entirely unprepared to meet and fall in love with a German woman. At a moment of growth and on the brink of reconciling with his trauma, Flemming attempts to offer himself to another only to find that life has a strange way of reflecting the mind of the artist. Hyperion: A Romance is a fascinating blend of travel narrative, philosophy, and bildungsroman from a writer with a poet’s sense of the world.

With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s Hyperion: A Romance is a classic of American literature reimagined for modern readers.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."
