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. His best known work is The Scarlet Letter (1850).

    Great book

    Hawthorne likes to write about society versus the individual In this book, a group of people decide to isolate themselves from society and establish their own eutopia. It leads to interesting results. Out of three Hawthorne books I've read (the other's being THe Scarlet Letter and The House of Seven Gables), this is my favorite. It is covered with subtle humor. I really like Nathaniel Hawthorne and found myself really drawn into this story.
