The Education of Henry Adams
 
Henry Adams
 
Written in the third person, Adams contemplates his privileged background mirrored in the realities of the burgeoning twentieth century. Choosing not to follow in the footsteps of his influential family, which included presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams, Henry dedicated his life to observation, education, and writing.
