Hawthorne, Nathaniel: The House of the Seven Gables, v.1, 09 Dec 2007

Quote:
Greed, treachery, mesmerism, and murder are just some of the bricks Hawthorne uses to build The House of the Seven Gables. Generations before the present story begins, wealthy Colonel Pyncheon covets Matthew Maule’s land. When Maule is hanged for witchcraft, he puts a curse on the Colonel—and all his descendants. Now the menacing Judge Pyncheon continues the family tradition of hiding cruelty under a dazzling smile, while his scowling niece, Hepzibah, and half-mad nephew, Clifford, are reduced to poverty by his machinations. But the younger generation, embodied in their distant cousin, Phoebe, becomes a ray of hope penetrating the dark house.

Though Hawthorne openly discusses his book’s “moral” in its preface, The House of the Seven Gables is no dry sermon. In fact, a strong stream of poetic fantasy runs through it, which the author acknowledges by calling it a “romance,” rather than a novel. Like his other great works, The House of the Seven Gables reflects Hawthorne’s rich understanding of complex motives, of individuals caught in the unending struggle between our highest aspirations and our basest desires.
Another Hawthorne classic.
