Evangeline is a long narrative poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in the 19th century. It tells the story of Evangeline Bellefontaine, a young Acadian woman who is separated from her true love, Gabriel Lajeunesse, during the Great Upheaval (also known as the Expulsion of the Acadians). The poem begins in the village of Grand Pré in Acadia (present-day Nova Scotia). Evangeline and Gabriel are engaged to be married, but before they can wed, the British authorities force the Acadians to leave their homes and disperse throughout the British colonies. Evangeline and Gabriel are separated, and Evangeline sets out to find him. Over the course of the poem, Evangeline travels throughout the eastern United States and Canada, searching for Gabriel and encountering various people and challenges along the way. Despite her efforts, she can never find Gabriel, and the poem ends with her living out the rest of her days as a nun in Philadelphia, still searching for her lost love. The poem is notable for its depiction of the Acadian people and their history, romantic themes, and sweeping narrative structure.
