The House of the Seven Gables

  • Pocket

  • 1982

  • Engelsk

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 façade and exposed the true human condition.
