Nathaniel Hawthorne

(1804-1864)

American Author
The effects of Puritanism on colonial New England

Born in Salem, Massachusetts, and educated at Bowdon College, Nathaniel lived for 12 years the life of a recluse, devoted to writing fiction novels.

Unfortunately, his first novel Fanshawe (1828), was a failure.

In 1842 he married Sophia Amelia Peabody and settled in Concord, Massachusetts, a place dear to Thoreau.

He had to wait for Twice-Told Tales, in 1837, to access recognition and be published.

Three years later, The Scarlet Letter was a major success, and his best-known work.


Other of his works include Mosses from an Old Manse (1846) The House of the Seven Gables (1851) and The Snow Image (1852).
