Today is the last day of the Transcendentalist Event that Jill from A Room of One’s Own was nice enough to host for us. I read two books out of everything I wanted to read, but I am going to continue my reading of the Transcendentalists until the end of the year. So more posts to come. Right now I’m finishing up Robert Bly’s The Winged Life: The Poetic Voice of Henry David Thoreau, and then I’ll be moving on to a biography of Thoreau. My reading habits have been horrible over the past couple of weeks due to traveling and getting ready for Christmas, but I’m pretty much done with everything now, so I’m hoping to get back into the reading swing of things.
This is what I ended up posting during the course of the official event:
- Book Review: The Essential Margaret Fuller (which also includes links to the four other posts I put up about Fuller)
- Book Review: American Transcendentalism: A History, written by Philip F. Gura
For those of you who joined us for this laid back read-along, I hope you enjoyed what you read and I hope you learned something about Transcendentalism and the people involved. I have learned quite a bit so far and hope to learn more over the next couple of weeks.
Thank you again to Jill for hosting this. I have really enjoyed reading everyone’s posts.
