This extraordinary fragment, left incomplete at the author's death, hints at the direction Hawthorne's genius may have taken had he lived.  Ironically, the subject is the search—through science rather than magic—for an "elixir of life."  Poignantly, the unfinished manuscript lay upon Hawthorne's coffin during the author's funeral services.

Meet the Author

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864) was an American novelist and short-story writer whose works were notable for their strong moral focus, hatred of hypocrisy, and a use of symbolism so lush and romantic as to almost constitute in itself a counter-argument to any morality but art for art's sake.
