about

Does a spirited young painter who's fallen in love with a preacher need to comprise her own personal convictions to marry him? Find out in this surprisingly insightful work by Henry Adams. While Esther's plot may sound like one pulled from today's romantic comedies, Adams creates a story filled with tension and personality clashes, painted against a backdrop of arguments about religion, science, art and poetry. Henry Adams had the opportunity to pursue a wide-ranging variety of intellectual interests during the course of his life. Functioning both in the world of practical men and afffairs (as a journalist and an assistant to his father, who was an American diplomat in Washinton and London), and in the world of ideas (as a prolific writer, the editor of the prestigious North American Review, and a professor of history at Harvard), Adams was one of the few men of his era who attempted to understand art, thought, culture, and history as one complex force field of interacting energies.
