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. Come explore a sampling of what some later writers with Beacon Hill connections brought to American literature. Discover how their colorful, if not always happy, lives and their highly personal style differed from their repressed and proper(or properly repressed) predecessors.
