              Roger Malvin's Burial: Short Story (EPUB ebook)

              By Hawthorne, Nathaniel

              When two men are gravely injured during the Battle of Pequawket in 1725, one makes a choice that will haunt him for the remainder of his days. Although Reuben and Roger take shelter against a tombstone-shaped rock together, Reuben survives only by leaving his friend to die. Years... later, Reuben takes his grown son hunting and is forced to confront his guilt about not keeping his promise to a dying man. "Roger Malvin's Burial" was adapted into a short radio program in 1949, and was also republished in the collection Mosses from an Old Manse in 1846. It remains one of Nathaniel Hawthorne's most moving but least-known short stories.

              The Minister's Black Veil: Short Story
                

              The Minister's Black Veil: Short Story (EPUB ebook)

              By Hawthorne, Nathaniel

              Overnight, Reverend Hooper has taken to wearing a translucent, but dark veil. Believing the veil to be symbolic of his sin, Hooper refuses to remove it, and wears it throughout the rest of his life. Like the majority of Hawthorne's stories, "The Minister's Black Veil" is an alleg...orical criticism of Puritan beliefs. Hawthorne may have been inspired by clergyman Joseph Moody, who accidentally killed his friend and, in response, wore a black veil until his own death.

              Young Goodman Brown: Short Story (EPUB ebook)

              By Hawthorne, Nathaniel

              While travelling into the forest on an errand, Young Goodman Brown and his wife happen upon a Sabbath for witches where they are offered as new converts, prompting Brown to question his faith and trust in his spouse. Set in Puritan Salem, Massachusetts, "Young Goodman Brown" refl...ects author Nathaniel Hawthorne's perspective on this dark period of American history. Hawthorne was widely known for his common use of seventeenth-century Salem as a setting for his stories, which allegorically criticize Puritan values as contradictory. Although Hawthorne himself felt the story was not memorable, esteemed authors like Herman Melville, Henry James, Edgar Allan Poe, and even Stephen King have praised it as one of his best works.

              The House Of The Seven Gables (EPUB ebook)

              By Hawthorne, Nathaniel

              One hundred years after inheriting a seven-gabled house with a dark and cursed past, Clifford and Hepzibah are old and nearly destitute. Descendants of the cursed Colonel Pyncheon, they have resorted to taking in boarders and running a struggling cent store to support themselves.... When a distant relative, untouched by Colonel Pyncheon's curse, moves into the gabled house and takes over the cent store, her charm and disposition brings success to the shop and the Pyncheons' situation improves. But it soon becomes clear the bad luck surrounding the house is not easily overcome.The House of the Seven Gables was inspired by the gabled home of Hawthorne's cousin, and his own family's involvement in the Salem Witch Trials. The novel, claimed by Hawthorne to be a romance, has been re-categorized, controversially, several times as gothic horror, fiction, thriller, supernatural, and even fantasy. It has been adapted for the screen several times, and inspired H. P. Lovecraft's work in horror fiction.HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

              The Scarlet Letter (EPUB ebook)

              By Hawthorne, Nathaniel

              The Scarlet Letter is Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic tale of love, adversity, and community morals in Puritan New England. Forced to wear the scarlet "A" after committing adultery and bearing a child, Hester Prynne lives on the outskirts of society; visited by the Reverend Dimmesd...ale and watched over by Roger Chillingworth, she is both at the mercy and defiant of the values that shape her fate and that of her child.Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter was one of the first works of American literature to address themes of sexuality, morality, and spirituality from a uniquely American perspective. Because of Hawthorne's literary credentials, the novel was not censored upon publication despite its risque subject matter, and continues to be recognized as a relevent literary classic even in modern times.HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
