Evangeline, a Tale of Acadie, is an epic poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The poem follows an Acadian girl named Evangeline and her search for her lost love Gabriel, set during the time of the Expulsion of the Acadians. The idea for the poem came from Longfellow's friend, Nathaniel Hawthorne. The work was published in 1847 and it remains one of his most popular and enduring works. Many landmarks, statues, places, films and music have been dedicated to Longfellow's "Evangeline".
