    Hawthorne and His Mosses By Herman Melville From The Literary World, August 17 By a Virginian Spending July in Vermont A papered chamber in a fine old farm-house--a mile from any other dwelling, and dipped to the eaves in foliage--surrounded by mountains, old woods, and Indian ponds,--this, surely is the place to write of Hawthorne. Hawthorne in his own time: a biographical chronicle of his life, drawn from recollections, interviews, and memoirs by family, friends, and associates.

    Hawthorne's next novel, The House of the Seven Gables (), takes place in the New England of his own period but nevertheless also deals with the effects of Puritanism. For a time the Hawthornes lived at "Tanglewood," near Lenox, Mass., where he wrote A Wonder Book (), based on Greek mythology, which became a juvenile classic, and. The book made him famous in his own time and continues to be the primary tome associated with his name. The book brought with it the literary success he had desired since adolescence. In short succession, he wrote The House of Seven Gables() and The Blithedale Romance(). In , the Hawthorne family experienced a change.

    Hawthorne wrote The Scarlett Letter to illustrate the hypocrisy of the Puritans due to his own guilt for having an ancestor who served as a judge in the Salem witch trials. Therefore, to fully understand the nature symbolism Hawthorne intended for The Scarlett Letter, an analysis of Nathaniel’s Hawthorne’s background must be considered.   Despite his dissatisfaction, the book is full of idyllic descriptions of walks down country lanes to get pails of milk from nearby farmers, Author: Rebecca Onion.
