Summary
The Blithedale Romance, considered one of Hawthorne's major novels, explores the limitations of human nature set against an experiment in communal living. From mesmerism to illicit love, The Blithedale Romance represents one of Hawthorne's best and most sharply etched works, one that Henry James called his "brightest" and "liveliest" novel, and that Roy Male, acclaimed Americanist scholar, said is "one of the most underrated works in American fiction." This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition is set from the definitive Ohio State University Press Centenary edition of the novel
Summary
Inspired by the author's own experience as a member of the famous Brook Farm Community, the novel recounts the hopeful formation and slow fragmentation of a reform-minded socialist community in antebellum Massachusetts.
