Author Info
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Nathaniel Hawthorne lived much of his life in Concord, Massachusetts, where he was briefly at Brook Farm, the experimental transcendental community. One of his ancestors was a judge in the Salem witchcraft trials and became the model for the accursed founder of "The House of the Seven Gables". Hawthorne traveled extensively in Italy and set "The Marble Faun" there. His novels, particularly his most famous work, "The Scarlet Letter", made his reputation, but he is also considered a master of the short-story form.
Praise
"Though not his greatest, THE BLITHEDALE ROMANCE is the most 'actual' of Hawthorne's novels....We enjoy, in the direct way of lively reportage, the details of the farm....We enjoy the romance's images of homely country life undertaken by excessively refined sensibilities....Hawthorne's haunted, twilit imagination never admitted more local American daylight than in THE BLITHEDALE ROMANCE."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Abjuring the city for a pastoral life, a group of utopians set out to reform a dissipated America. But the group is a powerful mix of competing ambitions and its idealism finds little satisfaction in farmwork. Instead, of changing the world, the members of the Blithedale community individually pursue egotistical paths that ultimately lead to tragedy. Hawthorne's tale both mourns and satirizes a rural idyll not unlike that of nineteenth-century America at large.
