Excerpt from Prue and I, And, Lotus Eating

The education of the brothers was both irregular and fortunate; and one of its happiest phases was the in?uence of Emerson, one of the most liberating and inspiring thinkers who have appeared in America. From 1842 to 1844 the brothers were boarders and boarders only at Brook Farm, that interesting ex periment in plain living and high thinking which was one of the expressions of the stirring of the New England spirit, breaking away from Puritanism. Emerson, who was as witty as he was wise, de scribed it as a perpetual picnic, a French Revolu tion in small, an Age of Reason in a patty pan. To the Curtis brothers it was a period of stiff work in the languages, chemistry and music, and free and stimulating talk with the ardent and often interest ing apostles of the new thought which came from Germany by way of Coleridge, and was modified and extended by the keen, penetrating New England intelligence, and by a good deal of very human fun. We were thrown into convulsions of laughter at the sight of G. W. C. Dressed as Fanny Rlssler, making courtesies and pirouetting down the path, writes one of the chroniclers of Brook Farm. The brothers were embodiments of beauty and vigour; a visitor to the Farm reports that they looked like young Greek Gods. In later years George William Curtis had a singular distinction of manner.
