The Education of Henry Adams

SHARE





The Education of Henry Adams records the struggle of Bostonian Henry Adams (1838-1918), in early old age, to come to terms with the dawning 20th century, so different from the world of his youth. It is also a sharp critique of 19th-century educational theory and practice. In 1907, Adams began privately circulating copies of a limited edition printed at his own expense. The commercial publication had to await its author’s 1918 death, whereupon it won the 1919 Pulitzer Prize.
