A Journey Into the Transcendentalists' New England
Roaring Forties Press, 2006 - 179 páginas
The New England towns and villages that inspired the major figures of the Transcendentalism movement are presented by region in this travel guide that devotes a chapter to each town or village famous for its relationship to one or more of the Transcendentalists. Cambridge, where Ralph Waldo Emerson delivered his powerful speeches is highlighted, as is Walden, where Henry David Thoreau spent two years attuning himself to the rhythms of nature. Other chapters retrace the paths of major writers and poets of the period as well as the utopian communities of the time. This invaluable traveling companion offers street maps, historical illustrations, and narratives that create a vivid sense of New England in the 19th century.

This is a brief but useful collage of photographs, maps, and pictures. It moves back and forth in time with ease and provides recent photographs of the Transcendentalists homes and haunts. Ler resenha completa
