RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 53170437 LA English T1 Brook Farm : the dark side of utopia A1 Delano, Sterling F.,, PB Belknap Press of Harvard University Press PP Cambridge, Mass. YR 2004 SN 0674011600 9780674011601 AB " Life at Brook Farm resembled an Arcadian adventure, in which the days began with the choir singing Mozart and Haydn and ended with drama and dancing. But how accurate is this image? In the first comprehensive examination of the famous utopian community in West Roxbury, Massachusetts, Sterling Delano reveals a surprisingly grim side to paradise as the Brook Farmers faced relentless financial pressures, a declining faith in their leaders, and smoldering class antagonisms."
