The Blithedale Romance (Oxford World's Classics)

The Blithedale Romance (Oxford World's Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book describes the body of knowledge that has amassed regarding social influences on mental health. It gives an account of the methods used to collect data and to measure mental illness and its epidemiology, investigates how primary care physicians diagnose and treat mental disorders,

and explores the methods being used to prevent mental illness. In the final chapter the author assesses the future of social psychiatry and its relation to other branches of the discipline.

Synopsis:

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.
