Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

One of Hawthorne's major novels (completing a triumvirate for Paperback Classics), "The Blithedale Romance" explores the limitations of human nature set against an experiment in communal living. From mesmerism to illicit love, Blithedale represents one of Hawthorne's best and most sharply-etched works - one that Henry James called his "brightest" and "liveliest" novel.

This is a dense, but fascinating, novel about a writer who joins a utopian community. It's plenty sordid, and it should be required reading if you're interested in the utopian communities that sprang up in New England during the 19th century.
