    Oxford Worlds Classics The Education of Henry Adams
  • Autor: Henry Adams
  • Światowa klasyka w języku angielskim.
  • Every generalisation that we settled forty years ago, is abandoned As a journalist, historian and novelist born into a family that included two past presidents of the United States, Henry Adams was constantly focused on the American experiment. An immediate bestseller awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1919, his The Education of Henry Adams (1918) recounts his own and the countrys education from 1838, the year of his birth, to 1905, incorporating the Civil War, capitalist expansion and the growth of the United States as a world power. Exploring America as both a success and a failure, contradiction was the very impetus that compelled Adams to write the Education, in which he was also able to voice his deep scepticism about mankinds power to control the direction of history. Written with immense wit and irony, reassembling the past while glimpsing the future, Adamss vision expresses what Henry James declared the `complex fate to be an American, and remains one of the most compelling works of American autobiography today.
