Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hawthorne's famous collection of tales — published originally in magazines and newspapers and then in two separate editions during Hawthorne's lifetime — includes many of his best stories, from "The Minister's Black Veil" and "Wakefield" to "Mr. Higginbotham's Catastrophe" and "The Lily's Quest." Animated, as Rosemary Mahoney writes in the Introduction, by "the struggle between chaos and order, animal impulse and the specter of eternal damnation, purity of action against the power of temptation and the fear of isolation," these stories — like all of Hawthorne's work — remain powerfully contemporary.

Synopsis:

Twice-Told tales, originally published in 1837 and revised and republished by Hawthorne in 1851 (the edition reproduced here), is the most famous collection of Hawthorne's stories. All of Hawthorne's great gifts - and the features that make him not only one of the greatest but one of the most contemporary American authors, are on full display here.
