Puritans were the worst I blame them for maybe half of what's still wrong with America Every negative shitty thing people have told you about Hawthorne is complete and utter nonsense Do yourself a favour and pick this up or some other collection As short fiction goes it's Hawthorne and Borges then everyone else There's maybe some recent American short fiction that comes close to measuring up Amy Hempel DFW in Oblivion mode and so on My Kinsman Major Molineux Young Goodman Brown The Minister's Black Veil Dr Heidegger's Experiment The Birthmark Rappacini's Daughter Motherfuck This almost religious literary experience makes me want to read The Scarlet Letter again And man that says something Another grad seminar read or re read It is odd that I always favored Poe over Hawthorne in my younger days but my tastes have definitely changed I found myself liking Hawthorne and yet still baffled by his simple description filled with allusion If I have a chance I might give Poe and Hawthorne another readthere's just SOOOOOO many books to read I got this out of the library to read “Rappaccini’s Daughter” after reading “The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter” which adapted her as a characterI liked it but not enough to continue reading Hawthorne at present I’ve never been enad of his writing style and working my way through the complete works of Oscar Wilde is enjoyable and humorousI did like this“How often is it the case that when impossibilities have come to pass and dreams have condensed their misty substance into tangible realities we find ourselves calm and even coldly self possessed amid circumstances which it would have been a delirium of joy or agony to anticipate Fate delights to thwart us thus Passion will choose his own time to rush upon the scene and lingers sluggishly behind when an appropriate adjustment of events would seem to summon his appearanceRep re sent And why are we like this? Is it so that we will get sh done? In believing that the fruit of the NEXT flower will satisfyOn a different note I was interested to discover that there does seem to have been a fable about Alexander the Great and the poison maiden “Good writers borrow from other writers; great writers steal outright” search Wikipedia “Visha Kanya” and “Secretum Secretorum” With engaging writing going through the supernatural and gothic world Hawthorne is one of the exponents of this style in the early half of the 18th century influencing many other writers who came after himYoung Master Brown for example how many movie scenes we see were possibly inspired by this tale written in 1835 in which the protagonist seeing the most ordinary people in society from pastors and priests to politicians to merchants from acuaintances to unknown pedestrians of a city watches them closely and realizes that they are devils or faithful of a satanic cult I remember for example The Devil's Advocate or a TV adaptation of an episode of GrimmIn this tale the characters' names are related to the symbolic a direct metaphor of the story itself as in American Gods by Neil Gaiman Here we find a woman named Faith and the protagonist GoodmanFrom the dark and mysterious adventure of a satanic cult without the certainty of that if it is a dream or reality and the participation in it of a kind of secret society with the most unlikely members the author points to two profound reflections the greater evil would be that which dwells within people? And guilt and obsession could intoxicate an individual's mind in a radical way until death? Nathaniel Hawthorne is so underrated so prolific and most definitely one of my absolute favorite authors This little collection of twenty short stories pieces of fiction that set the foundation for the American short short as we know it today is a must read And how apt how great is the cover illustration featuring a detail from Goya's 'The Bewitched Man'? This edition uite easily satisfies both a veteran admirer of Hawthorne's work and newcomer to his oeuvre I loved carefully working my way through the stories curated in chronological order of their original publishing and being able to experience the profound symbolism within the tales the pure adoration of New England's origins and especially the supernatural superstitious darkness of Hawthorne's work once Hawthorne is much exciting if Puritan based tales can be exciting and accessible than I supposed he would be His tales are deliciously ambiguous and expertly crafted His particular theory of transcendentalism access to the Oversoul comes through communion with another person imbibes and clarifies all of his work This is certainly of immense historical interest but the stories vary in uality At the very least Hawthorne wrote with the illustrative flair of a great artist even when his themes characters and metaphysics were lacking that largely died after his century These stories from Hawthorne definitely have common themes within them and each one was uniue in its own way I am not much of a older story kinda person but this book was definitely an interesting read I have SO enjoyed The Scarlet Letterand seeing I have this volume and no others of Nathaniel Hawthorne's what better place to continue a new affair with a newly discovered writer
