The Blithdale Romance - Nathaniel Hawthorne
The Blithdale Romance - Nathaniel Hawthorne
Our Price: $9.95

Nathaniel Hawthorne's third book. Narrator Miles Coverdale flees the city for Blithedale Farm, where he and a group of like-minded companions intend to begin reforming a dissipated America. But the group are a powerful mix of competing desires and drives, and the idealism which inspires them finds little satisfaction in hard farm labor. Instead of dropping bad old habits and changing the world, the members of the community individually pursue egotistical paths which must lead ultimately to tragedy. With an introduction by Tony Tanner and explanatory notes by John Dugdale.

From the scafford, Maule points his finger at the Colonel and cries, "God will give him blood to drink!"
