Abstract

Article about Thomas Wolfe's two-week stay at Ocean Point, near Boothbay, in July 1923, where he went with his lover and benefactor, Aline Bernstein, to escape the heat of New York City while working on the galley his world-famous novel, Look Homeward Angel. Wolfe thoroughly enjoyed his Ocean Point visit, even musing on the possibility of perhaps buy land there to build a place of his own. Wolfe made another brief visit to Maine in 1931, staying at a boarding house on Orr's Island, where he was very dissatisfied with his fellow boarders. He never returned to Maine before dying of tuberculosis in September, 1938, just before his thirty-eighth birthday.
