The sins of one generation are visited upon another in a haunted New England mansion until the arrival of a young woman from the coun. S major point Like Hawthorne himself an Arminian Christian who repudiated the moral outrages his family once stood for they ve xercised their free will to choose good over vil Not verybody does that but verybody can do it and has a moral responsibility to do it a view totally opposite to both Calvinist predestinarianism and modern chemicalsocial determinism In his narrative voice Hawthorne addresses Judge Pyncheon with the clear language of personal moral responsibility and choice Rise up thou subtle worldly selfish ironhearted hypocrite and make thy choice whether still to be subtle worldly selfish ironhearted and hypocritical or to tear these sins out of thy nature though they bring the lifeblood with them The Avenger is upon thee Rise up before it is too lateBoth of my Goodreads friends who ve reviewed this novel consider it inferior to The Scarlet Letter I ll concede that point its plot doesn t have the dramatic tension of the latter though it has some It s not as strong in that regard as the author s less well known novels The Blithedale Romance and The Marble Faun ither But it has its

nonetheless it s perhaps the Gothic of Hawthorne s novels and it s message driven without losing sight of the very real often poignant human story it s tellingHawthorne s ornate 19th century diction isn t problematic to me but will be a bane to many modern readers That s a matter of misguided self conditioning and prejudice in most cases many modern readers That s a matter of misguided self conditioning and prejudice in most cases IMO Contrary to what many modern readers automatically assume xpanding one s vocabulary and being able to decipher complex sentences doesn t take being born with some kind of genius level I it only takes patience application and motivation and I think the pay off is worth itNote 1 Joseph Schwartz s Nathaniel Hawthorne 1804 1864 God and Man in New England contained in American Classics Reconsidered A Christian Appraisal provides an xcellent treatment of Hawthorne s often misunderstood religious thoughtNote 2 The 1940 movie adaptation starring Vincent Price as Clifford does not follow the novel very closely big surprise coming from Hollywood NOT Among other things the scriptwriters made Hephzibah his love interest rather than his sister Note 3 Though I ve read this book at least twice originally as a teen I ve never read it in the dition above The one I own and most recently read has no supplementary material xcept a good short biography of Hawthorne and a brief Forward and Afterword all by Andre Norton I actually njoyed this one Nathaniel Hawthorne has a uniue way of writing and I think it he s hit or miss For instance I didn t care for The Scarlett Letter but I Try breathes new air into mouldering lives and rooms Written shortly after The Scarlet Letter The House of the Seven Gables re addres. ,
