The House of the Seven Gables (World's Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The sins of one generation are visited upon another in a haunted New England mansion until the arrival of a young woman from the country breathes new air into mouldering lives and rooms. Written shortly after The Scarlet Letter, The House of the Seven Gables re-addresses the theme of human guilt in a style remarkable in both its descriptive virtuosity and its truly modern mix of fantasy and realism.

Synopsis:

"The Scarlet Letter" had disturbed readers with its dark view of human nature and guilt. In this later novel, Hawthorne attempted "a more natural and healthy product of my mind", a story which shows guilt to be a trick of the imagination. This is a critical edition for students from A'level up.

Synopsis:

A novel which deals with a decadent New England family and Holgrave, who rents a room in their seven-gabled house.
