A Journey Into the Transcendentalists' New England

Capa
Roaring Forties Press, 1 de jun. de 2006 - 180 páginas
This lavishly illustrated volume examines the major figures of the Transcendentalist movement and explores the places that inspired them. Beginning with Transcendentalism’s birth in Boston and Cambridge, the book charts the development of a movement that revolutionized American ideas about the artistic, spiritual, and natural worlds. At the same time, it creates a vivid sense of New England in the nineteenth century, from its idyllic countryside and sleepy towns to its bustling ports and burgeoning cities. The book is divided geographically into chapters, each focusing on a town or village famous for its relationship to one or more of the Transcendentalists.

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
