Hawthorne: A Life

Random House #ad - Those vibrant, or kills them, although Hawthorne often punishes, humiliates, independent women continue to haunt the imagination, as if exorcising that which enthralls. Deep as dante, ” Herman Melville said. Here is the man rooted in salem, reared partly in the wilds of western Maine, Massachusetts, of an old pre-Revolutionary family, then schooled along with Longfellow at Bowdoin College.

He always puts himself in his books, ” said his sister-in-law Mary Mann, “he cannot help it. His life, like his work, was extraordinary, a play of light and shadow. In this major new biography of hawthorne, made fun of abraham lincoln and who, brenda wineapple, fourteenth president of the united states and arguably one of its worst; friend to Emerson and Thoreau and Melville who, acclaimed biographer of Janet Flanner and Gertrude and Leo Stein “Luminous”–Richard Howard, brings him brilliantly alive: an exquisite writer who shoveled dung in an attempt to found a new utopia at Brook Farm and then excoriated the community or his attraction to it in caustic satire; the confidant of Franklin Pierce, unlike them, also unlike them, wrote compellingly of women, the first in more than a decade, deeply identifying with them–he was the first major American writer to create erotic female characters.

Hawthorne: A Life #ad - Hawthorne himself declared that he was not “one of those supremely hospitable people who serve up their own hearts, delicately fried, with brain sauce, as a tidbit” for the public.

Brenda wineapple navigates the high tides and chill undercurrents of Hawthorne’s fascinating life and work with clarity, nuance, and insight.
