Henry Adams

(1838-1918)

American Author
 

This Bostonian writer and historian, grandson of John Quincy Adams, ex-president of the United States, had also been minister to Great Britain, teacher of medieval history at Harvard for seven years, and, reluctantly, a journalist.



His career as a famous writer started with History of the United States of America (1889-1991) after he had wrote two biographies, a first anonymous novel, and a second, Democracy, under a pseudonym in 1880. Deeply stunned after the suicide of his adored wife in 1885, Henry Adams began to travel both mentally and physically.


The Education of Henry Adams, his best known work and one of the finest autobiographies, is describing his quest for mental peace in a turbulent world of exploding science and technology, and his failure to adapt to his contemporary life.
