      I see that this work was translated in 1888 by John Martin Crawford. So I
      guess the book was in it's prominence when J.R.R. Tokien was doing his
      studies and I am sure it made some sort of impression to his thinking and
      creation of his works, LOTR, Hobbit and the unfinished Silmarillion.

        Of course it reminds you of Hiawatha; Longfellow deliberately chose that meter for Hiawatha because he felt that it was a suitable one for the subject.

         

        Anyone ever read Lewis Carroll's parody of "Hiawatha"?
