Rate this title

A tale of failed possibilities and multiple personal betrayals as it explores the contrasts between what characters espouse and what they actually experience in an "ideal" community. The theme of unrealized sexual possibilies serves as a counterpoint to the other failures at Blithedale: clas and sex distinctions are not eradicated, and communal work on the farm proves personally unrewarding and economically disastrous.
