Overview

This book includes:
� Detailed Biography of Nathaniel Hawthorne
� Helpful Glossary of Old-English Words
� Commentary on Brook Farm: Understanding the Inspiration for the Book
This tale of love, controversy, spiritualism and even death will have you at the edge of your seat! Abjuring the city for a pastoral life, a group of utopians set out to reform a dissipated America. But the group is a powerful mix of competing ambitions and its idealism finds little satisfaction in farmwork. Instead of changing the world, the members of the Blithedale community individually pursue egotistical paths that ultimately lead to tragedy. Hawthorne's tale both mourns and satirizes a rural idyll not unlike that of nineteenth-century America at large.
