Continuing her interest in applying philosophy to literature and political theory, Colgan argues that American writer Hawthorne (1804-64) reacted strongly to the political and social ideas of his time, examining and sometimes participating in some of the more radical modes of social renovation. She does points out however his vigorous conservative response to reformist proposals for a socio-political existence that entailed the radical transformation of people and society, and apocalyptic yearnings for some form of world-immanent salvation.
