    PDF/EPUB Nathaniel Hawthorne ´ The Blithedale Romance ePUB Ç The Blithedale PDF \ ´ blithedale download, romance download, The Blithedale ebok, The Blithedale Romance ePUBThis review contains some spoilersWell this was an odd piece of work This was my first Hawthorne and while his writing made me want to read his other books this particular book left meI don't know I finished it with interest but at the same time I felt removed Hawthorne begins with a disclaimer that the events and people were not based on real life Since everyone knew of his time at Brook Farm a Utopian socialist community this naturally caused everyone to be especially attuned to how much it WAS based on his time there Was this just a bit of his rather odd humor? I tend to think it wasHis characters are complex caricatures if that makes sense When reading I had to keep reminding myself that Hawthorne was writing in the Romantic period Some of his characters were stock figures of a sort Priscilla for instance the frail pale but filled with a spiritual life force slip
