Novels, Mont Saint Michel, the Education e-book


If Mont Saint Michel portrayed a world unified by a common faith, The Education of Henry Adams portrayed a world irresistibly moving toward chaos.

Democracy: An American Novel Esther: A Novel Mont Saint Michel and Chartres The Education of Henry Adams Poems . Adams is not the most scintillating author but he wrote thoughtful books that are well worth reading. Democracy and Esther are minor novels that nonetheless give insight into post civil war America. The Education similarly offers a picture of the changes, mostly intellectual, that took place over the nineteenth century, though told from the standpoint of a disillusioned essentially 18th century mind.

Mont St. Michel is in Normandy.

Adams : Democracy; Esther; Mont Saint Michel and Chartres; the Education of Henry Adams. This Library of America volume includes the best-known works of Henry Adams, one of the most powerful and original minds to illuminate the American scene from the Civil War to World War I. Now brought together for the first time in a single volume, these works show the many forms-fiction, poetry, philosophical and historical speculation, autobiography-in.

Her presence dominates the book that followed- Mont Saint Michel and Chartres. Adams translates the poetry of courtly love and recounts the drama of Eleanor of Aquitaine's life and the timeless love of Abelard and Heloise. The narrative rises at the end to the brilliantly re-enacted drama of St. Thomas Aquinas' victory over the rival philosophers.

His two masterworks in this dazzling effort are Mont Saint Michel and Chartres and The Education of Henry Adams, published one after the other in 1904 and 1907.

Possible topics include The Education of Henry Adams as war prophecy, World War I as chronicled in the correspondence of Adams and his friends, Adams’s perennial engagements of public trauma and tragedy.
