Adams, Henry, Aiken, Henry D.


"The too-easy irony of the situation makes one hesitate to use Henry Adams against himself--to instance the enduring quality of his own work in contradiction of his belief that American society was deteriorating to the point where he could no longer speak to it. Only the urbanity of 'Democracy', the constant play of wit around its serious theme, possibly suggests, by its contrast to the deadly earnestness of the present-day political novel, that we may indeed have traveled a certain distance down the road from grace, as Adams defined grace. For the rest, almost seventy-five years after it was first published, Adams' novel is as relevant to our time as the current Presidential campaigns."Adams, Henry is the author of 'Democracy', published 1983 under ISBN 9780452009424 and ISBN 0452009421.
