Transcendental Wild Oats

Transcendental Wild Oats

Harvard, Massachussetts: Harvard Common Press, 1981. J. Streeter Fowke. first thus. hardcover. 12mo 92pp. with introduction by William Henry Harrison. from front flap: "In a twilight drizzle, a large wagon bearing an ill-assorted load of visionaries, philosophers, and children approaches the red farmhouse where transcendental salvation lies: Fruitlands. True, the property boasts only about ten ancient apple tress, but the founders of this 1843 utopian commune firmly believe that "plenteous orchards were soon to be evoked from their inner consciousness." So begins Louisa May Alcott's light-hearted account of her girlhood year at Bronson Alcott's short-lived communal experiment. Transcendental Wild Oats satirizes the men whose ideas were to have come to fruition in the Fruitlands experiment, and pokes mild fun at the practical value of those ideas."
