Van Wyck Brooks (1886-1963), was an American author, born in Plainfield, N.J., and educated at Harvard University. After a brief period as instructor in English at Leland Stanford Jr. University, he held editorial positions in New York, notably with The Freeman, a weekly magazine. Van Wyck Brooks is considered one of the ablest historians and interpreters of America's cultural development.


The Flowering of New England, 1815-1865
Recognized as one of the most exciting and notable literary achievements of out time, The Flowering of New England has been awarded every major honor that can be bestowed on a book in the United States, including the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.

The Flowering of New England is the first unified modern appraisal of the giants of our native culture. An inclusive, authoritative, inspiring book, it is at one and the same time a lucid narrative of ideas, a brilliant account of the lives of some fifty authors and painters, a poetic evocation of 19th-century Boston, and an almost reverential tribute to the genius of Hawthorne, Emerson, and Thoreau.
