Susan Cheever rocks the House

by RockDJayhawk on Oct 29, 2013

In American Bloomsbury, Cheever makes the world of Concord and its "genius cluster" come alive! The world created by Ralph Waldo Emerson comes to life. These are real people, with passion, full of zest, sometimes troubled, but real. If you ever wondered why Ralph, Henry, Nathaniel, Herman, Louisa May, and Bronson still matter to us today, let Susan Cheever be your guide. I loved American Bloomsbury. So will you.

Ho-hum

by Cariola on Mar 29, 2008

A rather ho-hum account of the community surrounding Emerson that included Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, Hawthorne, and the Alcotts, with guest appearances by Melville, Whitman, and Franklin Pierce. It may be that Cheever just took on too much in trying to tackle all of these eminent writers in one book. She jumps from year to year, person to person, place to place. It's not difficult to keep focused, but the end result, for me, was a book that stayed on the surface. I really learned nothing I didn't already know--and I'm no expert in the transcendentalists. And I don't feel that I got a very good sense of time and place here either.

A look back in time at authors of treasured American classic literature that helped to shape modern thinking. Concern for the environment and freedom and equality are some of the concepts promulgated here in this community of writers. If only we could be as dedicated to the public good as they were.
