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.

Mosses is another collection of Nathaniel Hawthorne's short stories. Each one is unique and fascinating. In many of these tales you see Hawthorne's morbid side, with guesome and intriguing deaths. The introduction, though it is long and hard to get through, is a wonderful description of the home that Hawthorne spent his honeymoon.

Waited for them to move. Then took swift bites. Moved away and basked in the sun, letting them finish it.
