This vintage book contains a collection of essays written by Nathaniel Hawthorne during his stay in England from 1853 to 1853. In these writings, Hawthorne’s humour, empathy, patriotism, and sharp judgement are displayed as he takes us on a tour through rural England and Scotland. The work displays the whole gamut of life, from the grandeur of London, to the horrors of poverty suffered by many. This book is recommended for those with an interest in nineteenth century England, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Hawthorne’s work. The essays of this collection include: “Consular Experiences”, “Leamington Spa”, “About Warwick”, “Recollections of a Gifted Woman”, “Lichfield and Uttoxeter”, “Pilgrimage to Old Boston”, “Near Oxford”, “Some of the Haunts of Burns”, “A London Suburb”, “Up The Thames”, etcetera. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.

About the Author:

Nathaniel Hawthorne was born in 1804 in Salem, Massachusetts. After graduating from university in 1825, he returned to Salem determined to become a writer and worked on short stories and historical sketches. In 1828 he published the novel Fanshawe at his own expense; it was a failure but led to a productive relationship with publisher Samuel Goodrich. He returned to writing short fiction, then worked for Goodrich as hack writer and editor. Hawthorne became a surveyor of the Boston Custom House in 1839, then left in 1841 to invest in a communal experiment, when he also married. Disappointed in communal life, he moved to Concord, Massachusetts and returned to serious writing in 1846 with Mosses from an Old Manse. After a further three years as a customs surveyor, he finally produced his first significant novel and masterwork, The Scarlet Letter, in 1850, followed by two more major novels and some of his best short stories. In 1853 a college friend became President and Hawthorne was appointed US consul at Liverpool, living in England and Italy for six years. He published a further novel and some essays on England on his return; four unfinished novels and passages from his notebooks were published on his death in 1864.
