    A great variety of classic American Lit, 1850-1895. Dark Romantic, Picaresque, Impressionistic, Romantic Adventure. I feel that this would have been a great middle volume of a set, perhaps volume one could have been Cooper, Irving and Poe. Volume three could have been Steinbeck and the expats.

    The Red Badge of Courage :: Well I can see why I didn't finish it the first time I tried, the pacing is pretty horrible for a young girl completely uninterested in the topics of history, war, and psychology. But having made my way through the entire book I feel that it is worth the effort. Billy Budd, Sailor :: Tragic, really. Beautifully written though, much more approachable and palatable than Moby-Dick; or, The Whale.

    http://nwhyte.livejournal.com/1192910.html[return][return]I guess I was just not in the mood for this. I found the archaic language tedious, the moral dilemmas artificial and not very interesting, and the portrayal of Puritan society unrealistic; I also was repelled by the author's lengthy autobiographical digression about working in the custom-house at the start. Well, one more nineteenth-century classic that I will never have to pick up again... http://nwhyte.livejournal.com/1192910.html[return][return]I guess I was just not in the mood for this.

    I have only read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and I liked it. The large amount of racism in the book is hard to swallow and I am sure I would have enjoyed it more if I was a kid but other than that it is a nice adventure story. I will say the language is a bit tough to get through since the author writes the word the way the characters would have pronounced them.
