Of Nathaniel Hawthorne's insight into the Puritan's simultaneous need for fulfillment and self-destruction, D. H. Lawrence wrote, "Nathaniel knew disagreeable things in his inner soul. He was careful to send them out in disguise." By means of artfully crafted and compelling tales, Hawthorne explored the destinies and concerns of early American settlers and citizens. In several of the stories in this collection, characters who hold themselves apart from their fellow man fall prey to the corroding desires of lust for perfection.

Hawthorne is so very Puritan, but he is also a very interesting writer. I would say that I like his writing, but do not really understand the cultural context he is coming from. Still, 'twas fun.

Wonderful anthology in Hawthorne's easy to read style that deals with moral issues and the surreal.

Hawthorne's allegorical satire on the sad state of those who profess Christ, but are not willing to suffer for His name's sake, presupposes a knowledge of John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress". Even the names of his characters are reminiscent of Bunyan's characters. It is an worthwhile read, but, sadly, all too true, even today. ( )
