Product Description

About the Author

Born in 1804, Nathaniel Hawthorne is known for his historical tales and novels about American colonial society. After publishing The Scarlet Letter in 1850, its status as an instant bestseller allowed him to earn a living as a novelist. Full of dark romanticism, psychological complexity, symbolism, and cautionary tales, his work is still popular today. He has earned a place in history as one of the most distinguished American writers of the nineteenth century.

HASH(0x9bf53288) out of 5 stars An overlooked classic of American literature May 17 2015
By Paul S. Jellinek - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This thoroughly engaging and very human memoir of Hawthorne's days in England (and Scotland) during his time as American consul in Liverpool is one of those hidden gems of American literature that deserves to be far more widely known and read than it is. Hawthorne truly is one of America's great writers, and for those who only know his dark side (eg., "The Scarlet Letter" and "Goodman Brown"), this book will be a revelation. As we join Hawthorne on his leisurely ramble through the various corners of Britain (which, for Americans such as Hawthorne, was indeed "our old home"), he shares his many observations, insights and reflections, not only on the places and people he encounters along the way but on life in general. This is not a book to speed read; it is a book to savor, one page at a time. It contains more wisdom than many of the great works of philosophy and more gentle humor than you will find in all of our modern humorists combined, but it is Hawthorne's basic decency and humanity that is ultimately the book's greatest strength. When I finally read the last page (which, by the way, is hilarious), I felt as if I were taking leave of an old friend.
