The Delight Makers

Contributed by

In 1890, Adolph Bandelier published the novel The Delight Makers to help subsidize his research.  He wrote the first edition in German and later translated it into English.  It was not a success at first, and it was not until the 20th century that it was read seriously by the American public.  Critics over the years have characterized it as an archeological study rather than a literary work with a strong plot and living, breathing characters. But with time, the work has become significant for its intellectual history and scientific value as well.  Its popularity in modern times has brought this novel a new status, and it is considered by many to be a minor American classic.
