Blithedale Romance And Gender Roles

Decent Essays
For my final project I will be examining the role that gender plays in the Blithedale Romance, specifically how Brook Farm as a utopia looks to represent the roles of men and women in society. I will examine how the Brook Farm looks to change the societal norms surrounding gender. My argument will be centered on the idea that although these utopia communities, specifically Brook Farm, looked to change or eliminate the typical gender roles that existed at the time, they ultimately cannot. I will delve into why they cannot, specifically focusing on the idea that the reason these communities cannot change or redefine these roles is because ultimately these utopia societies are set to fail from the get-go, as we see in the Blithedale Romance.
