    The Blithedale Romance Epub ✓ The Blithedale eBook blithedale mobile, romance download, The Blithedale mobile, The Blithedale Romance ePUBI usually start my book selections without reading about them or about the authors but this time I read the Wiki entry for Nathaniel Hawthorne before beginning The Blithedale Romance I cannot decide if that was a good idea or a spoiler This book was based on his own short time spent in the utopian community known as Brook Farm but when I read the article about his life and a separate article about the community I was surprised to see that he did not believe in the enterprise he had simply hoped that living there would be a way to save money so he could get marriedSo that explained the main character's lack of true enthusiasm for his new life at Blithedale and the bitter somberness of the entire story Our poet narrator Coverdale is a young man from the city who decides he can change the world by joining with like minded individuals at a rural farm Only he nevertruly believes in the

    The Blithedale Romance Epub ✓ The Blithedale eBook blithedale mobile, romance download, The Blithedale mobile, The Blithedale Romance ePUBFlat out my favorite Hawthorne though I end up teaching THE SCARLET LETTER a lot This is probably his one work that feels very contemporary what with the commune setting and the very relevant gender dynamics The characters are at once stock figures and yet somehow deeply real Miles the proto Nick Carraway Priscilla the light girl the monomaniacal Hollingsworth and of course Zenobia the dark woman and ambiguous symbol of feminism Part of what makes this one fun is that you can debate the actions of these people in ways you really can't with SCARLET or SEVEN GABLES

    The Blithedale Romance Epub ✓ The Blithedale eBook blithedale mobile, romance download, The Blithedale mobile, The Blithedale Romance ePUBMankind has always had and will always have a penchant for utopian dreams of one sort or another It may be that the frustrations of living in an imperfect world cause some to seek a new way of life by forming a community of like minded optimists to live closer to the earth and pursue common ideals The Blithedale Romance is a story of such a community and a reminder that achieving heaven on earth will always be beyond our reach Nathaniel Hawthorne experienced this setting in real life when he spent a few months as a part of a community called Brook Farm It seems clear that he was less than enchanted with the venture which may in part account for the sometimes wry and satirical tone with which he describes Blithedale the fictional community of his novelThis is an occasionally dark and unusual story of 4 main character

    The Blithedale Romance Epub ✓ The Blithedale eBook blithedale mobile, romance download, The Blithedale mobile, The Blithedale Romance ePUBHawthorne's mellifluous voice is clearly recognizable here but I did not like this as much as The Scarlet Letter Coverdale as a narrator is a passive presence and at times is somewhat of a creeper He is ultimately outside the circle of true action and from his own account never accomplishes much of anything with his life The other characters are difficult to get a true fix on due to the unreliability of Coverdale's reportage There are some insightful psychological observations made but my personal opinion is that it is weaker than TSL

    The Blithedale Romance Epub ✓ The Blithedale eBook blithedale mobile, romance download, The Blithedale mobile, The Blithedale Romance ePUBI’ve been meaning to read this novel for quite some time Firstly I have a particular interest in stories about communal life since I came close to joining a commune when I was a teenager Hawthorne based the novel’s intentional community of Blithedale on the real utopian farming commune Brooke Farm which Hawthorne helped to establish although apparently he didn’t adhere too strongly to its values Secondly the second novel in Joyce Carol Oates’ Gothic Quintet is called “A Bloodsmoore Romance” I’m not sure if Oates’ book plays upon Hawthorne’s novel at all other than in its title but I figured it’s best to read the classic novel first Perhaps my motivat
