'The most luxuriant of the seed-bed sowers of American literature' Simon Schama 'The style of Hawthorne is purity itself. His tone is singularly effective - wild, plaintive, thoughtful' Edgar Allan Poe 'The allegorist par excellence' Telegraph --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
Nathaniel Hawthorne (born Nathaniel Hathorne; July 4, 1804 – May 19, 1864) was an American novelist and short story writer. Much of Hawthorne's writing centers on New England, many works featuring moral allegories with a Puritan inspiration. His fiction works are considered part of the Romantic movement and, more specifically, Dark romanticism. His themes often center on the inherent evil and sin of humanity, and his works often have moral messages and deep psychological complexity. His published works include novels, short stories, and a biography of his friend Franklin Pierce. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
