Abstract : Henry Adams's Life of George Cabot Lodge presents the biography of a minor poet whose birth into one of Boston's most prominent families may have been an obstacle towards his reaching literary success, for reasons which seem strikingly similar to the biographer's own difficulties as he articulates them in The Education of Henry Adams (1907). This examination has been organized into four chapters: (1) a biographical examination of the relationship between Adams and Lodge; (2) a comparative reading of the Life in the context of other later works, such as The Education and Mont-Saint Michel and Chartres; (3) a detailed comparison of the Life with other biographical portraits of Lodge, such as in Edith Wharton's A Backward Glance; (4) and finally, an explanation of how Adams's biography of Lodge fits into the American literary tradition
