Description
 
Petrulionis, Sandra Harbert To Set This World Right: The Antislavery Movement in Thoreau's Concord. Ithaca, NY and London, England: Crnell University Press, 2007.  233pp. Cloth.

 

In the Decade before the Civil War, Concord, MA, was a center of abolitionist sentiment and activism. To Set This World Right is the first book to recover and examine the voices, events, and influences of the antebellum antislavery movement in Concord. In addressing fundamental questions about the origin and nature of radical abolitionism in this most American of towns, Sandra Harbert Petrulionis frames the antislavery ideology of Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson - two of Concord's most famous residents - as a product of family and community activism and presents the civic context in which their outspoken abolitionism evolved.

 

Sandra Harbert Petrulionis is Associate Professor of English at Penn State Altoona. She is the editor of Journal 8: 1854 in the Writings of Henry David Thoreau and coeditor of More Day to Dawn: Thoreau's Walden for the Twenty-first Century.
