Literary Beacon Hill Walking Tour 11 AM

A special treat



After the likes of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Louisa May Alcott in the 19th century, another literary scene evolved on Beacon Hill in the 20th century. But, how did it compare to the Victorian "flowering of New England"? Come explore a sampling of what some later writers such as Esther Forbes, Sylvia Plath, and Robert Frost brought to American literature. See where these literary lights lived, wrote, and worked on the beautiful Beacon Hill. Discover how their colorful, if not always happy, lives and their highly personal style differed from their repressed and proper (or properly repressed) predecessors.
