Product description

About the Author

Ignatius Loyola Donnelly (November 3, 1831 – January 1, 1901) was a U.S. Congressman, populist writer and amateur scientist, known primarily now for his theories concerning Atlantis, Catastrophism (especially the idea of an ancient impact event affecting ancient civilizations), and Shakespearean authorship, which many modern historians consider to be pseudoscience and pseudohistory. He was the son of an Irish immigrant who had settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was admitted to the prestigious Central High School, the second oldest public high school in the United States. There he studied under the presidency of John S. Hart, excelling primarily in literature. He then decided to become a lawyer, and became a clerk for Benjamin Brewster, who later became Attorney-General of the United States. He was admitted to the bar in 1852. In 1855, he married Katherine McCaffrey, with whom he had three children. In 1855, he resigned his clerkship, entered politics and participated in communal home building schemes. Together with several partners, he initiated a utopian community called Nininger City.

Another attempt which fails of A Brave New World. I just wanted to put it down.Too wordy, a "Flow of Ideas" doesn't work, tho' plot is interesting, if there is a plot.I gave up on it. Perhaps later I'll give it another go

1.0 out of 5 stars thoughts from the past 19 April 2011
By Sylvia Wadlington - Published on Amazon.com

Caesar's Column by Ignatius Donnelly was written by an interesting historical figure who was said to have gotten himself elected to congress simply to gain full access to the library. Written a hundred and twenty years ago the author never dreamed such things as unions, computers or cell phones would appear. He sees a very dark future for the country as more and more people are getting jobs. During his time this was considered one of the country's greatest threats, because people who had jobs instead of living off the land like everybody else were considered shiftless. Employment was considered by some to be white slavery. What is interesting is that he pictures the wage earners ending up very much like Stienbeck's migrant workers. After reading it I could see why it was a total failure. The author made the two classic mistakes of all utopian writers, he never stopped to think, what if, by some miracle, it all goes the other way and society self corrects itself and that most people are satisfied with living and saving the perfect society for that time they plan to spend with angels.
