Topics

The Literary World of Susan Cheever

As the daughter of best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer John Cheever, she grew up at the heart of Literary America. Robert Penn Warren and Ralph Ellison and Josephine Herbst were her childhood friends and Saul Bellow and Philip Roth, William Maxwell, Toni Morrison and Malcolm Cowley (whose son was her first husband) oversaw her development as a writer. Cheever learned to write by being married to three distinguished writers: Rob Cowley, Calvin Tomkins and Warren Hinckle III. She has taught writing at Yale, Bennington and many other places. This lecture is about the writer's life, the discipline and methods of successful writing, the ways writers influence each other and the nuts and bolts of good writing. What is the difference between an interesting story and a brilliant memoir? How can a good story become a good book? How can good writers become great?

The Gossip of Transcendentalism

This is a look at the true stories behind the first group of professional writers in America, their romances and literary friendships, their lives and loves. Much of American literature was written in and around three houses in Concord, Massachusetts over a five year period by Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott, Margaret Fuller, Nathaniel Hawthorne and their friends Herman Melville, Henry James, Horace Mann, Thomas Wentworth Higginson and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow; their colleagues were Walt Whitman, Edgar Allan Poe and Horace Greeley.

What creates a "genius cluster"? Why did this extraordinary group of writers come together and how did they influence each other? What effect did it have when Emerson and Hawthorne both were involved with Fuller, or when both Thoreau brothers proposed to the same woman, when Emerson's wife Lidian preferred Thoreau to her husband or when the young Louisa May Alcott developed severe crushes on her teacher--Thoreau--and her neighbor Emerson.

This lecture is based on Cheever's book American Bloomsbury: Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry David Thoreau.
