Though much of his work is categorized as lyric poetry, Longfellow experimented with many forms, including hexameter and free verse. His published poetry shows great versatility, using anapestic and trochaic forms, blank verse, heroic couplets, ballads and sonnets. Typically, Longfellow would carefully consider the subject of his poetic ideas for a long time before deciding on the right metrical form for it. Much of his work is recognized for its melody-like musicality.[As he says, "what a writer asks of his reader is not so much to like as to listen".

In preparing the volume, Longfellow hired Katherine Sherwood Bonner as an amanuensis.
