9780451531629: The House of the Seven Gables (Signet Classics)

First published in 1851, The House of the Seven Gables is one of Hawthorne's defining works, a vivid depiction of American life and values replete with brilliantly etched characters. The tale of a cursed house with a "mysterious and terrible past" and the generations linked to it, Hawthorne's chronicle of the Maule and Pyncheon families over two centuries reveals, in Mary Oliver's words, "lives caught in the common fire of history."

This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition uses the definitive text as prepared for The Centenary Edition of the Works of Nathaniel Hawthorne; this is the Approved Edition of the Center for Scholarly Editions (Modern Language Association). It includes newly commissioned notes on the text.

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 172 x 107 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This enduring novel of crime and retribution vividly reflects the social and moral values of New England in the 1840s. Nathaniel Hawthorne s gripping psychological drama concerns the Pyncheon family, a dynasty founded on pious theft, who live for generations under a dead man s curse until their house is finally exorcised by love. Hawthorne, by birth and education, was instilled with the Puritan belief in America s limitless promise. Yet - in part because of blemishes on his own family history - he also saw the darker side of the young nation. Like his twentieth-century heirs William Faulkner and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hawthorne peered behind propriety s facade and exposed the true human condition. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780451531629
